1. Urban Density and Urban Heat Island Effect – From anthropogenic heat to Heat Island Reduction (HIR) Large cities and metropolitan areas are hotter than surrouding suburban and rural areas. Urbanization of ever increasing areas is replacing natural vegetated surfaces, such as grass and tress, with non-reflective, water resistant impervious surfaces that absorb high percentage of theContinue reading “Choosing A Roof.

The Varieties of Building E[m]ergy Intensity – Dr.Braham
One of the enduring problems of environmental building design is the determination of meaningful norms or points of comparison for evaluation. Building energy use is typically normalized to floor area and compared to buildings of similar types of use in similar climates. This provides a valuable tool for analyzing building operation, but reveals little aboutContinue reading “The Varieties of Building E[m]ergy Intensity – Dr.Braham”
The project begins with the challenge of reusing and restoring an existing, vacant brownfield site located on the fringe between Seattle’s industrial district to the south and the heart of the city to the north.

Facebook E[m]ergy Accounting
Without a doubt, Social media has become a big part of our daily lives. The research focused on Facebook (FB) to gather the necessary information regarding energy use, user behavioural patterns, and other necessary information to calculate E[m]ergy values of annual Facebook and users activities.
