PLEA 2016 FORMAL DINNER, JULY 12



Participants will be able to attend the conference dinner on Tuesday evening, July 12 at a unique location: the Walt Disney Concert Hall. This concert hall is home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Master Chorale and was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, with acoustics by Yasuhisa Toyota. Walt Disney Concert Hall has received worldwide critical acclaim and praise from concertgoers for its stunning architecture and extraordinary sound. A small fee will be charged for this very special dinner with music.

Designing Zero Net Emissions Buildings (ZNEm) using the 2030 Palette

Instructors: Alfredo Fernandez-Gonzalez (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) and Anthony Guida (Architecture 2030)

Date: Sunday, July 10th from 1:00-5:00pm (please be ready to begin at 12:45pm)

Cost: $75 professional / $25 student

Location: Biltmore Los Angeles, Heinsbergen Room

Length: 4 hours

Description: This workshop introduces ways in which the 2030 Palette, a free online platform that presents design principles and actions that foster low-carbon and resilient built environments, may be used to teach and/or conceive Zero Net Emissions Buildings (ZNEm). The workshop builds upon other free and downloadable design tools that help create a simple, yet powerful framework to organize ideas relevant to the design of high-performance buildings.

Intended audience: Professionals, educators and students in the fields of architecture, engineering, construction management, environmental design and allied disciplines.


Climate Analysis and Conceptual Energy Modeling: An Introduction to Climate Consultant and HEED

Instructors: Murray Milne (UCLA), Tim Kohut, AIA (Green Dinosaur), Carlos Gomez (UCLA Energy Design Tools Group)

Date: Sunday, July 10, 2016 2PM to 5PM

Cost: $20 professional or student, cash only please (you are welcome to bring a computer to the session with the software pre-loaded)

Location: Tiffany Room, Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles

Length: 3 hours

Description: This workshop will introduce participants to climate analysis and conceptual energy modeling using two design tools, Climate Consultant and HEED, available for free from UCLA’s Energy Design Tools website:

Climate Consultant

HEED


Following a brief introduction of each of the tools, participants will first analyze the climate where they live (using Climate Consultant), and then will model their own home, or sample home provided to the class. In the process, users will use HEED’s analytical screens to identify strategies for optimizing energy performance, adding renewable energy, and achieving a Zero Net Energy home. If you are planning to bring a computer, please use the links listed above to download the software onto your computer before arriving at the session. Introductory tutorials to HEED and Climate Consultant can be found here: http://www.energy-design-tools.aud.ucla.edu/ If time permits, we will show the first demos for two new, soon to be released design tools that evaluate small commercial buildings.
