190929_Externalization Matrix

Precedent Externalization Matrix.jpg

This matrix begins to break down the programming pattern of case studies from those that are very well externalized to those that are completely HVAC dependent. The matrix is broken down into climate and typology, with the climate comparing the normative approach to well externalized approaches, and the typology going from those that are easy to externalize (environmental centers) to those that are hard to externalize (healthcare).

With Mixed Use buildings being my main focus for this thesis, the mixed use row has more case studies investigated than other typologies. This allows for better analysis for patterns, opportunities, and connections that can be extracted from this matrix.
