In this Step you can test your understanding of how to perform a sun simulation.

To do:

Using the model you created, create an analysis of sun/shadow for two dates: the 1st of March and the 1st of June.

Assume Stockholm or your own hometown as the study location.

Discussion:

  • In terms of solar access, what areas are most suitable (comfortable) for outdoor activities?
  • Considering both the wind simulation and the solar access, what areas are most suitable for planning outdoor activities?
  • What areas should be avoided?
