Human-Building Interaction Laboratory (HBI Lab) strives to understand the two-way interaction between buildings and their occupants to maximize comfort while minimizing environmental impacts. The HBI Lab seeks to understand and influence building design using a multidisciplinary engineering-based, simulation, experimental, and field study approaches. The human-building interaction begins at the earliest stages of design and continues through the entire life cycle. Our philosophy is that designing buildings to be robust, versatile, and comfortable inherently causes occupants to act in sustainable ways…more
