Event description

Description

Active cooling systems are the default response to overheating in city buildings. Sealing the envelope to protect the interior from noise, dust and fumes is the justification. But many believe we are entering a new era where reduced impact from new technologies and cleaner cities - electric vehicles being the prime mover - will change this development dynamic. A greater understanding of the impact of ‘control’ on the wellbeing of occupants is also a driving factor. This Conversation will discuss whether we are entering a new era of passive design and environmental engineering and how we should prepare for it, if this is the case.

Steve Williamson, Happold Foundation – Chairing
Sue Roaf, Professor of Architectural Engineering at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh
