Webinar: Heroically Green–Before Building Science
Peter Pfeiffer shows you how to up your building game by incorporating climate-change responsive design.
As climate change makes our environment less hospitable and more unpredictable, it is crucial to design homes & buildings that can respond to the change and stand up to the ever-growing threat it brings with it.
In this session, esteemed sustainable architect Peter Pfeiffer discusses how to implement a holistic design approach that operationalizes climate-responsiveness to produce homes that will be truly resilient and livable in the aftermath of catastrophic natural disasters.
Pfeiffer explores the importance of critical pre-design project programming, climate-responsive shading and passive-solar design strategies, resource efficient floor planning, right-sizing, smarter kitchens and bathrooms, interior design flaws that affect lighting and air-conditioning energy consumption, glare-free daylighting, hot and cold-climate resistant roofs, and other important design elements that ensure healthier living in tune with the climate.
