This study examines the thermo-spatial performances of eight responsive building envelopes from the built environment. The objective is to understand and compare each of the envelopes for their thermal comfort/sensation performances, and their capacities for creating visual transparent conditions through the envelope. Through extensive simulations, based on annual hourly simulations in two geographic locations and with a series of envelope movements, a large dataset is created for further analysis. The envelopes are then compared through comparative graphs, showing that one design strategy perform better than the rest. The paper includes the framing of the study, the methods used to convey the investigations and the results obtained. Lastly, specific findings are presented in the conclusion, with additional discussion for intended future studies.
