An Integrative Assessment System for Building Aesthetics Applied with Photovoltaic Cells
The purpose of this research is to construct an aesthetic evaluation system for buildings with solar cells applied.
The current solar cell is applied to buildings mainly for energy performance, and this is the situation where the method of
aesthetic expression of the building has not been established. Therefore, in this research, the application plan was analyzed for
solar cells considering the characteristics of solar cells and the characteristics of building façade. The analysis method derives
aesthetic elements through preceding research and cases of BIPV buildings and derives objective and consistent evaluation
elements through three processes. Based on these evaluation systems, as a future research, this paper will suggest to construct
quantitative and objective data through AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) and VE (Value Engineering) analysis and try to
construct aesthetic design guidelines for BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) buildings.
