Expanded Futures – Special Focus Session

2022 AIA/ACSA Intersections Research Conference: RESILIENT FUTURES


Go behind the scenes to discover the science, techniques and software used to create both usable data sets for architects and exploratory design platforms. This panel will uncover the actual processes used to pull weather data and climate analysis to influence design decision-making as well as explore the game creation process. It will explore the ways designers are responding to the challenge of potential climate catastrophe and how resilient principles can help avert a dangerous future.

Learning objectives

  • Explore human-centered design with sustainability so that client outcomes rely on reliable evidence to improve both the occupant experience and building performance.
  • Discover how to access and apply weather and climate data sets to your practice, and learn about software used to analyze those datasets.
  • Learn about the process of game design in an architectural context. 
  • Discuss collaborative approaches to sustainable design that results in positive, transformational impacts to the environment.
