Lucas van Laack - Senior Energy and Environmental Advisor at Rambøll Norge AS
Speech: Digital wind tunnels and climate data forecasts
Lucas is a senior advisor with 7 years in the AEC sector (Architecture, Engineering and Construction). He is a trained architect as well as chartered engineer, specialised in sustainable building design - a hybrid so to say. His work and research is focused on taking design ideas through parametric optimisation processes to deliver innovative and robust solutions. For building projects ranging from masterplans in the Middle East, corporate headquarters in San Francisco to high rise structures in Asia and the Pacific, he is using innovative methodologies for big data sets to enhance tomorrow's building design.
How do you handle present requirements efficiently in the face of future requirements? In this speech we will uncover the world's leading innovations in building performance analysis derived from current and future climate data scenarios. We will showcase a hand-picked range of optimisation examples where big data sets were used to understand, evaluate and optimise environmental building performance. This is a process-driven approach were the right questions have led to push the boundaries of building design, of course based on the efficient handling of - big data.
