The University of Oregon Department of Architecture and Environmental Studies invites to the presentation ‘Lost in Transformation!‘ given by Thomas Auer as part of the 2021-22 Lecture Series.
The event is on April15th, at 4:30 pm at the Portland WSB main event space and on Zoom:
"Thomas Auer is managing director of Transsolar, Stuttgart. The Climate Engineering practice has received international attention over the last three decades and is working on all scales from single buildings to urban neighborhoods. As Professor and Chair of Building Technology and Climate Responsive Design at the Department of Architecture of TU Munich focuses on a holistic design approach.
For buildings and cities, it is crucial to recognize the sustainability goals of the EU as well as the reduction of substantial CO2 emissions in the building sector, as defining parameter. Thomas and Transsolar have always advocated an understanding of energy efficiency that goes beyond technology. They develop holistic concepts that incorporate the urban and regional scale. The overall objective of this approach is to create maximum comfort in the interior as well as in the exterior of the built environment while minimizing the use of resources at the same time. Thomas works in interdisciplinary teams and has established a three-step approach comprising space design, building performance design and infrastructure design."
