Luke Leung and Arvinder Dang to Speak at Greenbuild

On October 22 and 23, 2014, two sustainable engineering experts from SOM will speak at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Held this year in New Orleans, Greenbuild is the world’s largest green building symposium, bringing together workshops, industry showcases, and renowned speakers that represent the most innovative ideas driving sustainable design.

Luke Leung, SOM Director of Sustainable Engineering, will participate on a panel titled “Data-Driven Design: Architecture in the Age of Information.” The discussion will explore how big data can be harnessed in order to shape high-performance buildings and environments at every level of design. Leung will be joined by Lance Hosey, Chief Sustainability Officer at RTKL, and David Fano, Partner and Managing Director at the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology (CASE).

Arvinder Dang, SOM Performative Design Group Studio Head, will participate on a panel called “Daylight Stimulation at Four Architecture Firms.” Her case study explores SOM’s in-house daylight stimulation program and presents findings that are being used to help SOM's Sustainable Engineering Studio examine daylighting design parameters associated with real projects. Dang will be joined by Kjell Anderson, Architect and Sustainability Coordinator at LMN Architects, Joseph Mayo, Architectural Designer at Mahlum Architects, and Eddy Santosa, Energy Modeling Lead at Callison.
