AIA+2030 Session 3 – Accentuate the Positive: Climate Responsive Design

June 21, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Join us for a tour of Eden Hall Campus!




AIA+2030 Session will convene in the 1st floor classrooms of Esther Barazzone Center, Eden Hall Campus. 

The conventional modern building design approach presumes that a building’s energy will be imported in the form of electricity and fuel. Integrated design accounts for the resources sites offer, as well as minimizing unwanted environmental conditions. In this session, we’ll explore using climate data, site characteristics and other tools to conduct a site resource inventory, which in turn is used to inform the building design and reduce building energy load. This session will set the stage for future sessions addressing specific strategies in more detail by first addressing the question, “What do we need to know in order to create an informed design?” and examine the synergies and tradeoffs of major design decisions.
