Abstract

Highlights
•Development of a design methodology that can handle the vast design space in early building design.
•A global design space is modelled from extensive Monte Carlo simulations.
•Sensitivity analysis methods applied to guide decision-makers.
•Interactive visualizations help the multi-actor design team explore thousands of building performance simulations.
•Metamodels are used to run additional simulations and demonstrate the holistic consequences of input changes.
