The primary goal of Passive Comfort Lab is to understand the fundamentals of heat transfer and building physics. The course begins with basic concepts and then moves on to hands-on experiments and exercises focused on the course project: the design and construction of a 1 cubic metre volume that can be used as a stand-in for the building envelope. The course also provides us with a thorough foundation in thermal comfort evaluation and building simulations, as well as in-depth knowledge of climate analysis, shading, natural ventilation, and other passive measures. Selected works from the studio have been included in the portfolio
