Walls

Understanding and optimizing the heat transfer through the walls is important in high performance building design.  Using thermal mass and insulation to your advantage with passive design strategies can help reduce the amount of energy that active systems need to use.

HVAC Equipment

Mechanical heating and cooling uses electricity or burning fuel to achieve thermal comfort in buildings.  They are also called HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems.  They include air conditioners, boilers, chillers, heat pumps, dehumidifiers and humidifiers, radiant systems, and other types of equipment.

Computational Logic I

 In this lesson we look at how to create a computational attractor system using environmental data from Vasari. As you can see in the background 3D preview of my Work Space, the orientation of different panels are changing as my Sun Path in Vasari updates.
