What is the typology of the hotel today? It has become a unique hybrid that has morphosized over time where it is not simply a destination to sleep. It has become a series of layers that contribute towards the experience that makes them iconic such as Las Vegas strip and “Burj Al Arab” in Dubai. One critical angle that is rarely discussed is the demand of energy at peak load and how that information determines the architectural design. This is crucial in order to change our perspective towards development especially because of our current economic climate and energy consumption woes. With this in mind we take the challenge of re-creating a hotel envelope that responds to the peak loads with no reservations.Participants will: perform basic heat load calculations; implement principles of heat load to better understand the relationship of enclosure; explore the energy performance of the building; and improve the design building enclosures they design by using the principles and calculations presented in the workshop .
The cost of this workshop will be only $50. Attendees can register by calling Cassie at the ASES office at (720) 271-6556.
