Workshop on Bioclimatic Architecture
Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 09:00 to 17:00
Order of Engineers & Architects - Tripoli, Tripoli, Lebanon
This workshop focuses on architecture and urban design from passive and bioclimatic approaches.
Fundamental concepts important to natural ventilation and daylighting are introduced.
Using Building Performance Simulation tools is a major section in this workshop.
Participants will be trained to verify their design and the effectiveness of passive strategies with the help of these tools. Their use is aimed at supporting the designer's decision making by verifying the success of different passive design measures, using weather files for the local context. Tools & Programs include Climate Consultant Weather Tool, Google SketchUp, Construction Thermal Conductivity and Time Lag Calculator
