  1. Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    Routledge Chats with Kjell Anderson about Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    "While a handful of architecture firms have measured the performance of their designs and occupied buildings in the past, this is a rapidly growing trend.  Firms are simulating during design, asking for earlier engagement of energy analysts, and going back to check on completed buildings.  Performance, in this case, can refer to overall energy use, thermal comfort, daylight levels, occupant satisfaction, usage patterns, etc.  Their simulation results from early and late design are being compared against post-occupancy results, leading to a more informed design process."

  2. Designing Relationships

    Chatting with Andrew Pressman about Designing Relationships

    "Learning to collaborate effectively and reaping the resulting benefits could not be more timely. The emergence of integrated project delivery (IPD) and building information modeling (BIM) together with the complexity of projects and the speed with which they must be completed make an in-depth understanding of collaboration a current, critical issue in architectural practice. Designing Relationships is for leaders who want to grow their collaborative leadership skills and elicit the best work from partners and collaborators. And it is for team members who seek insights to better job performance and better project outcomes."
