Welcome to the Teaching Architecture + Energy project at Washington University. This site is part of a collaborative network of energy technology teachers in architecture schools, sponsored in part by the U.S. Dept. of Education . Our goal is to make it easier for architecture students to understand energy concepts and to design energy efficient buildings. The curricula developed here and at other universities is centered around Energy Scheming, a energy simulation tool that helps the student think about energy as an integral part of building design.

Climate:
context for design

Exercises:
"recycling with energy scheming"

Example:
shanley building
