Claudia Lueling is a professor of architectural design at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and a practicing architect with her own firm, Lueling Sauer Architects in Berlin. Her work focuses on research, development and implementation projects investigating the design potential of sustainable materials, in particular, building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). She has lectured internationally and has served as a juror in architecture competitions. She holds an architecture degree from the Technical University Darmstadt and an MA from SciArc, Los Angeles.
In this lecture, Lueling will give an overview of the important shift toward making buildings potential producers of energy rather than mere consumers. Using examples from her latest book, Energizing Architecture, Lueling will describe the various technologies and materials available to architects today and the ways in which these can be integrated both functionally and aesthetically into buildings.
Apart from the potential to run our coffeemakers and reduce our carbon footprint, Lueling will explore the new materials and technologies as architectural design tools with their chameleon-like ability to adapt, transform and reach into applications in art and industrial design.
This lecture will be followed by a reception for the speaker in the Lightfoot Forum, College of Design.
This event is part of the "Toward Sustainable Cities" series of events presented by the ISU Council on Sustainability, the College of Design and the Live Green! Initiative.
