Abstract: This paper describes the development of a Computational Building Simulation (CBS) tool, termed KRONOS that is being used to work on advanced architectural research questions such as user behaviour in buildings. The intention is to provide better support for dynamic space-time related research as well investigations into static building modelling and simulations such as energy performance. The research findings, supported by two empirical case studies, indicated that building performance can not be predicated through the development of building and environmental models alone. It must be understood as a product both an environment and its users. To study or predict building performance requires both advanced static and dynamic capabilities
