MATCHBOX is an energy calculation tool which offers a basis for communication between design consultants throughout the design process. MATCHBOX enables systematic analysis of critical building energy flows related to climate, occupancy, envelope, and building orientation. MATCHBOX does not create the design, or prescribe design solutions, but by quickly and simply quantifying, graphing, and tracking the energy effects of design decisions, it can give building designers a clear, quick measure of the energy consequences of fundamental design decisions. MATCHBOX was developed to enable the delivery of net-zero and regenerative buildings, by enabling designers to visualize and track the energy effects of their decisions from the initial stages of design to completion. MATCHBOX useful, elemental technology in compact form.
