Passively Aggressive: Employing Passive Systems for Load Reduction

Properly designed, a building captures existing site resources such as light, wind, and solar radiation to provide for the comfort and needs of occupants. Passive systems work in concert with site resources to manage building energy demand through design. This session will build upon the concepts introduced in Sessions 3 and 4 and explore a holistic strategy for designing passive systems.

AIA+2030 Learning Objectives
  • Define passive systems and identify specific elements of a passive design.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of various passive strategies based on available site resources.
  • Determine the most successful strategies for a given site.
