On October 2-3, at the 12th Advanced Building Skins Conference in Bern, Switzerland, faculty from the Department of Architecture in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) presented their research.
The goal of the conference is to contribute to an integrated planning approach to the energy consumption of buildings by hosting an exchange of ideas from all aspects of design and construction. There were 234 paper presentations, given by professors, researchers, architects, engineers, scientists, and manufacturers about various topics in sustainable technology and construction.
Members of the architecture contingent who presented at the conference include Professor Michael Crosbie, Associate Professor Ted Sawruk, Assistant Professor Timothy Adekunle — who co-authored with Sigridur Bjarnadottir, assistant professor of the civil, environmental, and biomedical engineering department and Samuel Oloyed, department of estate management for Covenant University — and Adjunct Assistant Professor Jason Hegenauer.
