Abstract

The "Virtual Design Studio (VDS)" is a software platform currently under development by Syracuse University together with key partners including Nanjing University in China. It is an integrated, coordinated and optimized design tool for green buildings and their energy and environmental systems. The current paper mainly discusses the development of a localized version of VDS for hot and humid climates in Southeast China. This region is the most developed area in China and has a very humid climate throughout the year. The localized VDS aims to provide specific solutions, guidance and support for architects to design green buildings in line with the evaluation standard for green building in China. The software contains powerful simulation engine for hygrothermal performance of buildings, local construction library, material library and a user friendly Chinese interface. A localized VDS user workflow is also illustrated with a simplified design example.
