The Design Groups and Consultancies had an all day discussion with Dr. Godfried Augenbroe, head of Building Technology at the Georgia Tech College of Architecture. Each group presented their designs and findings thus far - it was lively, with lots of debate around orientation, building form, site response, energy delivery and most importantly, energy performance evaluations.
Thanks to you all for the sustained focus yesterday - that was a total of 5 hours of dialogue on such a great subject - well done. It's important now to keep up the momentum and take advantage of the input yesterday immediately. Work as teams to address the key challenges now!!
And many, many thanks to Dr. Augenbroe for spending the afternoon with us in studio.
We look forward to seeing everyone in the classroom and the Hinman studio next week.
