Specification of performance requirements is an emerging area of research that promises to improve building design particularly during the early stages of design. Building problem decomposition and recomposition can be based on a number of requirement categories in order to group building functions into hierachically organized groups. Traditionally this activity is known as stacking and blocking, or zoning; and limited to spatial requirements. Our long term objective is to broaden this set into a more comprehensive one, including thermal, acoustic, and daylighting; and improve the state-of-the-art in building performance specification. While domain information from various building performance areas may be applicable toward enriching the informational basis for stacking and blocking operations, this paper focuses primarily on the thermal and acoustic domain.
