The Formation of Energy in Architecture
Kiel Moe, assistant professor of architectural technology, Harvard University Graduate School of Design
A registered architect, Kiel Moe is an assistant professor of architectural technology and the area coordinator of the sustainable design concentration in the advanced studies MDesS program at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He was awarded the 2009-2010 Gorham P. Stevens Rome Prize in Architecture and is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome. Moe recently received the 2011 Architectural League of New York Prize, the 2011 AIA National Young Architect Award, and has been recognized with numerous design awards for individual projects from the American Institute of Architects, North American Wood Design Awards and Boston Society of Architects, among others.
In this lecture, Moe will address the formation of energy in contemporary architecture. He posits that all material practices are but a subset of energy practices and that this is a transformative premise for design. The focus is the degree to which energy practices can help make discipline-specific decisions in this century. One design-build project in central Colorado serves as the primary study.
