Teaching Resources

Teaching architects, engineers, and urban planners how to design healthier and more resource-efficient environments is a key objective of the lab. For our introductory course on climate-responsive design, daylighting and energy use in buildings, MIT 4.401/4.464 Environmental Technologies in Buildings, please refer to our MOOC version on edX or the lecture notes on MIT open course ware.

Below you will find additional documents, exercises and step-by-step tutorials that we have been using for teaching daylighting and energy modelling. Should you decide to use this material in your courses or in practice, please give due credit to the authors. Let us know in case you find any errors so that we can keep this information up to date.
