Nov 11, 2020 NZEB Knowledge Series Webinar – A climate based approach to Carbon Neutral design
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. The webinar hosts Pablo La Roche who is an associate vice president in CallisonRTKL’s Los Angeles office and a leader for the firm’s Performance-Driven Design initiatives, focusing on sustainable design for the commercial practice group. His expansive portfolio includes sustainable buildings all over the world designed with state-of-the-art tools. He is also a tenured professor of architecture at Cal Poly Pomona University and an accomplished author.
The webinar describes 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 is also shared in the webinar.
