CESI Seminar Series: Timur Dogan, Architecture Art Planning (CU)



Thurston 203


This talk showcases a cross-section of research conducted at the ESLab at Cornell AAP. The Lab's mission is to bridge between design and engineering practices and develop software tools that facilitate environmental simulation and computational design in architecture and urban design.

Timur Dogan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture and the director of the M.Arch. Program and the Environmental Systems LabOpens an external link. Dogan is also the chair of the faculty advisory board at the Cornell Atkinson Center for SustainabilityOpens a Cornell link, and a field member of the Department of Architecture, Department of City and Regional Planning, the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, as well as the Systems EngineeringOpens a Cornell link program. Dogan holds a Ph.D. from MIT, an MDES from Harvard GSD, and a Dipl. Ing. in architecture with distinction from the Technical University Darmstadt. Dogan's mission with Cornell and the Environmental Systems Lab is to enhance the knowledge of sustainable building technologies through innovative educational programming and strategic research at the intersection of design, computer science, building performance simulation, and urban geospatial analysis. His research expertise is in daylighting, energy modeling, passive climate control strategies, and performance-driven design workflows at urban and architectural scales. The Environmental Systems Lab's research outcomes are sustainable design analysis methods, workflows, teaching concepts, computer-based design tools, and building component prototypes.
