Abstract This research presents a solution for evaluation of kinetic faÁades system performance via experiences and lessons learnt from experiments. We bridge between architects and engineers to address limitations associated with incorporating performance criteria in the design of kinetic faÁades by integrating different simulation tools. The experiments focus on optimization of the daylight performance through the design and motion of kinetic faÁades using various integrated software. The research is developed using real time data feedback processed through various digital tools from three domains: (1) Architectural design, (2) day-lighting performance and (3) parametric design computation. From the evaluations, the paper demonstrates the analysis of kinetic motion for daylight optimization at the early design stage and suggests possible configurations for daylight performance.
