Design with Climate: Building for a Cooler Planet
50% of the world’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions come from modern buildings, building trades and construction. Is it possible to greatly reduce our energy use simply by designing buildings differently? What about choice of materials and new – or even ancient – technologies to passively heat, light, and cool buildings? Join us for an evening of exploration as the Environmental Science Institute (UT-Austin) presents "Design with Climate: Building for a Cooler Planet " by Dr. Werner Lang.
