Daylight Simulation helps designers in identifying best building orientations to reduce heat gain and HVAC loads. For the ambient indoor environment, it can help decide advanced passive interventions for reduced glare and sufficient diffused light penetration.
Energy Efficient or Green Buildings are recognised solutions for slowing down climate change and reduce overall contribution to carbon emissions. Professionals in the building sector and green building analysts are adapting to this need and the use of Computer-Aided Design has proliferated the results.
Environmental Design Solutions (EDS) organises various workshops and courses on enhancing building performance and reducing its carbon footprint. EDS is a sustainability advisory firm focusing on the built environment. They have worked on over 350 green building and energy efficiency projects worldwide
This certification course lasts for 2 weeks, starting 21st September 2020. It enables learning of 3D modeling in Rhindo3D and scripting in Grasshopper to conduct daylight simulation using Ladybug and Honeybee plug-in.
Have you ever wondered about inciting spiritual metamorphosis of self, committing to human service, and living closer to nature, while practicing sustainable architecture? We have and we care to share with you about a place where it is possible, a place that teaches sustainable and compassionate living in parallel to physically building one, a place called Dharmalaya. Since its conception in 2008 by three of Earthville’s directors – Mark Moore, Mai-Linh Leminhbach, and Dara Ackerman, the institute has welcomed numerous workshop participants, volunteers, architects and nature lovers.
Nestled in the Indian Himalayan foothills of Bir, this charitable organisation transpires educative empowerment to traditional wisdom and integrates innovative modernity in its various participatory programs. They have focused on sustainable village development, contemplative service-learning, immersive ecotourism and preservative adaptation of vernacular intelligence.
Pioneers in off-grid living, Morgan and Mary Jane of North Carolina have been hosting natural building and sustainable living workshops since 2016 at Sustainable Life School. Their previous experimentation with earthbag construction serves as a basis for workshops. They believe that the technique results in strong, versatile, inexpensive and eco-friendly structures.
