Teaching Architecture + Energy

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 and Washington University. Our goal is to make it easier for architecture students to understand energy concepts and to design energy efficient buildings. The curriculum developed here and at other universities is centered around Energy Scheming, a whole-building energy simulation tool that helps students think about energy as an integral part of building design

Climate and Light 546c

This web site is for a class in the Washington University School of Architecture that introduces the theory of an ecological approach to architecture and covers the schematic design of buildings for heating, cooling, and daylighting.

Students Work

This web site is a collection of student work from Washington University School of Architecture, and from other schools, in which energy efficiency or environmental design was a major part design of the project.
