About the Author
Christoph Reinhart is a building scientist and architectural educator working in the field of sustainable building design and environmental modeling. At MIT he is leading the Sustainable Design Lab, an inter-disciplinary group with a grounding in architecture that develops design workflows, planning tools and metrics to evaluate the environmental performance of buildings and neighborhoods. Products originating from the group – such as DIVA-for-Rhino, Mapdwell, DAYSIM and umi – are used in practice and education in over 90 countries. Before joining MIT in 2012, Christoph led the sustainable design concentration area at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design where the student forum voted him the “2009 Teacher of the Year.” Before that he had worked for over a decade at the National Research Council of Canada and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Germany.
