A successful wind tunnel workshop for architects!
For the third time, we had the pleasure of hosting a workshop for architects where they learn about how our wind tunnel services can contribute to their design process.
One of our senior specialists gave an introduction to wind- related issues in urban areas, and how a pleasant wind environment can be ensured by performing wind tunnel tests.
Practical exercises in the wind tunnelThe architects also had an opportunity to put their new knowledge to the test in the wind tunnel. They were introduced to simple techniques to detect exposed and sheltered areas in urban spaces and even made simple modifications to the models to promote a better wind comfort.
“I gained a better understanding of the scope of how wind studies can contribute in the early design process,” says Jonas Aarsø Larsen, architect at Bjarke Ingels Group.
