High Comfort - Low Impact

Comming on April 27th the Integrated Design Lab will be hosting Thomas Auer as part of the Better Bricks transformational lecture series. Trained as a Process Engineer at the Technical University in Stuttgart, Thomas is a partner and Managing Director of Transsolar, a climate engineering firm with offices in Stuttgart, Munich and New York. A specialist in the fields of integrated building systems and energy efficient building design, Thomas has worked in collaboration with internationally known architects and developed energy concepts for projects around the world noted for their innovative design and low energy use. Such concepts have incorporated both interior and exterior comfort in the design of low carbon projects from individual building scale to urban district scale.Among his projects in Germany are the KFW Bank office building in Frankfurt, the new spa in Bad Aibling, and the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin. The office tower for Manitoba Hydro in Winnipeg, Canada is considered one of the most energy efficient high rise buildings in North America. Other projects include the passive design for the French School in Damascus and urban developments in Toronto, Paris and Casablanca.
