English abstract:
This paper presents the concept of an "open" simulation environment for performance-driven design exploration as a multi-directional approach to computer-aided daylighting modeling. A prototypical realization of a Generative Simulation Tool for Architectural Lighting (GESTALT) for simultaneous treatment of daylighting-related design and performance variables is introduced. GESTALT can operate in an "explicit" mode using a fast-response computational module and in an "implicit" mode using a comprehensive simulator and investigative projetion techniques. Illustrative sequences of design explorations with GESTALT are presented and discussed.
