Urbanized Hanok

CFD building simulation project (Fall, 2016) | Prof Ali Malkawi                                                           Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Cambridge, MA

The project site is a 600-year-old Korean traditional village composed of historical places, hanok (Korean Traditional Building) situated in this old urban environment in the center of Seoul. The aim this retrofitting project for modern Hanok is to achive occupants’ the thermal comfort as well as energy savings. By coupling cfd model with energy simulation engine, radical energy saving during natural ventilation potential periods is achieved.
