Daylighting, natural ventilation, energy and comfort.

Architects and Building Designers can use computer modeling to improve indoor comfort and energy performance of conceptual building designs. But most simulation tools are too complicated for this purpose.

Quick, visual comparisons are needed for early-stage design. The MIT Design Advisor is a tool which allows you to describe and simulate a building in less than five minutes. No technical experience or training is needed. An annual energy simulation can be run in less than a mintute, and graphical results are immediately available for review
