We have been talking a lot about focusing on your “one thing.” My one thing is research. I talk a little about pulling research and development into your one thing, where all things are interrelated. I also talk a bit about how simulation technology is being used to solve real-world sustainable design challenges and discuss the utility of the feedback loop in the design process. The discussion includes presenting toolsets for analysis and optimization of daylighting and energy in buildings using software including Rhino, Grasshopper, DIVA, Ladybug, Galapagos and Octopus.
