The main objective of this project is to demonstrate a novel approach to solve the problem of irradiation analysis in architectural design significantly faster than existing methods. This speed increase in turn enables new design workflows in architectural design. It will enable the designer to reduce the expected energy consumption of the designed building. More generally we will show that a difficult problem, previously viewed as a simulation problem, can be addressed utilizing the technology and techniques from computer graphics, specifically GPU accelerated rendering.
