Abstract: In the pursuit of greater energy efficiency, buildings have become sophisticated pieces of equipment that require occupants to operate them in precisely defined ways. Creating a comfortable environment demands an unprecedented level of skill from occupants as well as an understanding of how buildings and their systems work. This talk will examine new trends in low energy building design and what these mean for occupants. The work draws on detailed field studies of how people use their homes and the environments they create.

Biography: Professor Chris Tweed is the BRE Trust Research Chair and Director of the BRE Centre for Sustainable Design of the Built Environment (SuDoBE) in the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University. His research is focused on the interaction between people and built environment technologies, with the intention of informing design to improve the quality of human experience. A pervasive theme monitoring and analysing building performance from a human perspective.
