Current buildings (in Europe) constitute roughly for 40% of the energy usage out of the total energy used. This level can be dropped to 10-20% if smarter and greener buildings are incorporated around the world. Buildings can be made smart by using dynamic movement (rotation), sensors and greener by deploying solar energy to conserve power. In this research, different innovative solar tracking techniques will be deployed on different structures (non-rotating and rotating). By means of simulation (LabVIEW) and by comparing results we will be able to define the most suitable framework of solar deployment and will be able to define whether a dynamic building is more worthy than a stationary one in terms of cost and conservation of energy. The following research introduces topics like rotating buildings, different techniques of tracking the sun and rise of concern in the world about greener and smarter buildings. Through my research, I would like to initiate a movement in the direction of innovative, greener and smarter buildings. As the world, doesn’t realize that wasting power needlessly will come back to haunt us severely in the next few coming years. -M.Rehan-

Engineer Muhammad Rehan has withhold a vision for simulation for a very long time. Now as a Masters holder in the field of engineering management. He has created a simulation based on a futuristic dynamic building. Hoping to make a break through in sustainable structures including comparisons & realistic analysis with structures of today.
