Despite the continuous development of performance simulation tools, their seamless integration in the design process is still a challenge. One area that has remained largely unexplored is computational fluid dynamics (CFD). CFD simulations have a large variety of applications in architecture but due to the complexity of the physics involved and the computational demand of the available solvers, their use has been restricted to final design stages and validation of design assumptions.
Angelos Chronis is a PhD Candidate, as part of the InnoChain program at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain. He teaches at IaaC and at the Bartlett School of Architecture of University College London. Previously he has been working as an Associate for the Applied Research + Development group at Foster + Partners. He holds a diploma in Architecture from the University of Patras, Greece and an MSc in Adaptive Architecture & Computation from the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, UCL, with distinction. He is a registered Architect both in Greece and in the UK.
