Energy-efficient zero carbon buildings can only be designed after first understanding climate and the design strategies that can be implemented to respond to it. This presentation will describe the Performance-Driven Design workflow at CallisonRTKL using different building simulation tools and applied research results with examples from practice. Research and analysis on carbon neutral design by students at Cal Poly Pomona in the United States carried out under the mentorship of Pablo La Roche will also be shared in the webinar.
