Parametric Tool Development for Evaluating Embodied and Operational Carbon in Schematic Design  

Teresa Moroseos, from the University of Washington Integrated Design Lab (UW IDL), will share the research progress on the development of the parametric tool that can be used to evaluate embodied and operational carbon in early design. This project was funded in part by the SeaBEC 2020 Research Grant. The UW IDL, in partnership with faculty from the UW Department of Architecture, developed the tool for use in a UW graduate research studio in the spring of 2021. The tool was developed using a visual programming language to run iterative simulations through EnergyPlus and custom Python scripts that calculate operational and embodied carbon for early-stage building designs. The tool allows parametric input for various building parameters including window-to-wall ratio, wall assembly, window assembly, exterior shading, and simple massing. Teresa will share the process for developing the tool, current tool capabilities, integration of the tool into the UW studio class, and the next steps for the project. 

 Teresa Moroseos is a Post-Doctoral Scholar with the Integrated Design Lab (IDL) at the University of Washington's College of Built Environments. In this role, she provides daylighting and energy performance analysis for projects throughout the United States. Teresa also conducts research related to building performance. She has a background in engineering and architecture. Prior to working at the IDL, Teresa worked as a designer at a Seattle architecture office where she worked on civic buildings. She has also taught undergraduate students at the University of Washington in topics of climate analysis, energy principles for buildings, passive solar design, and daylight simulations.
