Designing Day-lit, Glare Free, Energy Efficient Buildings in Budget
Presenters: Patricia Kusumadjaja and Marco Aguirre
Shifting energy codes are challenging architects with a wide array of parameters to balance like energy, cost, daylight, views, and embodied carbon. Hiring a consultant for every kind of analysis is a burden on fees. Many architects are harnessing simulation to shape the design and details of their projects. To be successful, teams must understand the levers that impact the performance and set up processes for success. Join this session diving into two case studies to generate beautiful analysis graphics and see how to shape the narrative in a data driven design process.
This is a Zoom event. Zoom information will be sent with registration confirmation. This event is free and open to the public, or offers CE credit with a paid ticket. 1 LU (pending). All sales are final.
