There is an increasing demand for building performance assessment among architects mostly due to a rising awareness for issues related to environmental sustainability. However, after thirty years of research, interoperability of performance analysis tools with CAAD environments is still far from being seamless. Yet, all commercial CAAD vendors have recently started offering an array of building analysis tools. It is fair to expect a new surge of efforts in integrating prediction and evaluation capabilities within CAAD systems over the next few years. Building on lessons learned, this paper argues the need for a unification infrastructure for building performance and outlines the requirements for building an analysis network.
