I am a sustainable design specialist and computational design leader at HOK. Disregarding the titles, I describe my work as going from point A to Z. It involves going from an idea or a conversation or a sketch to a script or a tool or a piece of content.
I am also a part of the development team of the Ladybug Tools and I contribute regularly through patches to the development and user support on the forum. I have taught several workshops in India that were focused on the use of simulations to make early-stage design decisions.
I always enjoy a good conversation. Apart from building performance simulations, I like to talk and hear about the global economy, future of jobs, protectionism, hindu mythology, and the bygone mughal empire of India.
I also maintain strong interests in web development, gym workouts, and the game of cricket.
From a sketch to a script for measuring views to the surroundings. A novel approach not found in other tools of the day.
A presentation on how to read a sun-path and predict sun-positions. The first in a series of presentations on building science.
A presentation on possible uses of sun-path in early stage design stage. The second in a series of presentations on building science.
