This paper presents a comparison of different pathways for the energy modelling of complex building geometry. We have identified three key modelling questions: first, how can the spatial organisation of the building be appropriately represented for energy analysis? Second, how can curved building geometry be post-rationalized as planar elements given the planar constraints associated with energy simulation tools? And third, how can an exploratory design process be supported using a 'top-down'doi:10.22360/simaud.2018.simaud.005 fatcat:yrscywyh4rardmcc2b72fdwhha
