Episode One: Building Positioning with Generative Design

In episode one, we’ll explore building positioning with generative design and how it can help improve the way we create and plan building positioning for construction sites! This is important as a successful building orientation can minimise energy loads and maximise free energy from the sun and wind which increases your organisation’s sustainability.

Episode Two: Light Distribution with Generative Design

Episode two dives into the contemporary concept of generative design for analysing light distribution, where we’ll discover how this can help expand the way we analyse light fixture layouts for building designs! Tune in to learn how Pentagon can help your architects and engineers create a sustainable design that minimises energy consumption whilst reducing both costs and carbon footprint.

Episode Three: Airflow Calculations with Dynamo

In episode three, we’ll talk about the innovative concept of using Dynamo for airflow calculations in design and discover how it can help influence the way we think about ventilation and comfort in buildings! Ventilation is crucial for creating comfortable and healthy indoor environments, with proper airflow ensuring the removal of pollutants, the regulation of temperature, and the well-being of building occupants being enhanced.

Episode Four: Solar Radiation Analysis with Dynamo

In the fourth and final episode, we’ll show you how you can use Dynamo for Solar Radiation Analysis to utilize the sun’s energy and reduce costs while contributing to a greener, more eco-friendly future! At Pentagon, we can help architects and engineers use Dynamo to optimize solar energy generation in ways that traditional methods cannot. This video will teach you about the impact of different solar energy strategies on energy production, return on investment, and environmental benefits.
