NZEB Knowledge Series | A Climate Based Approach to Carbon-Neutral design
November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
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 our Performance-Driven Design workflow at CallisonRTKL using different building simulation tools and applied research results with examples of projects from practice and academia with students at Cal Poly Pomona in the United States.
