Mark Reddington a Speaker at Music Matters to Seattle!

Seattle Architectural Foundation Presents: Music Matters to Seattle! 02/23/2015

Date: March 12, 2015

Location: Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (104 17th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144)

From hip-hop to grunge, Seattle’s varied music scene has nurtured generations of audiophiles who have helped make Seattle home to many well-loved record labels and radio stations. This affinity for music is also visible within Seattle’s built environment, from our concert venues, performance halls and interactive museums. In this lecture, our panel of guest speakers speak to how spatial design both reflects, and reacts to, the music scene in Seattle, exploring the relationship between creativity and performance and the spaces in which these events take place.

Kjell Anderson has organized a web-based Simulation Series in partnership for  The series is based on his book “Design Energy Simulation for Architects”, published in 2014 by Routledge, and includes five segments.   Each is an hour long webcast targeting architects and engineers that is then published for on-demand viewing.

The series is geared towards practitioners, helping architects make better decisions during the early design process.  The series includes focused case studies, live demonstrations of some software, and the underlying theory that allows architects to interpret simulations.  Guest speakers include simulation experts and architects from all over the US.

The series begins with climate analysis: TMY files, future weather files, and ways to sort, visualize and present the data to help make decisions.  The next two, Daylighting and Natural Ventilation, explore how each of these phenomena are simulated, how real projects have used simulation to inform design decisions, and some software options.    The last two, Shoebox Energy Simulation and Whole-Building Energy Simulation, look at what parts make up an energy model, how energy analysts run energy models, and how architects can successfully commission and learn from both simple and complex energy models.
