Transportation Alternatives for Sustainable Cities

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Elevators are a critical part of urban density. However, as buildings increase in height, the elevator core grows to accommodate the number of elevators required, reducing floor area ratio in a building. Recent innovations in vertical transportation revolve around how many elevators can be in a shaft and how we can dispatch those elevators intelligently. Dual-car systems optimize the elevator core area, while offering the flexibility of independently moving cars. Multidirectional elevators take this paradigm even further, as multiple carriages can be consolidated into fewer shafts, reducing the elevator’s footprint by up to 50%.

Top Daylighting: A Circadian Health and Wellness Perspective

This course, based upon scientific research and emerging medical discovery, illustrates how top daylighting (daylight penetration through the roof) design strategies produce positive biological responses impacting employee health and well-being. Participants will examine how exposure to "skydome dynamic daylight" throughout the workday provides all biologically relevant criteria for positive circadian system impact.

Advancing Light Quality for Human Preference and Well-Being

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course offers 1.50 LU/HSW Credits.

Light sources in commercial spaces are usually driven by maximizing efficacy, often at the expense of light quality. This course will review how today’s technology allows the quality of light to be more tailored to human preference, especially when it comes to designing interior spaces using lighting. It will focus on recent studies on human preference lighting and the key metrics used to assess a luminaire’s quality of light. It will also provide an overview of TM-30-18, the latest test method released by the Illuminating Engineering Society to measure light quality.


Please download the supplemental study material after enrolling. It is intended to be part of the course and its content will be referenced in the quiz.

Roof System Resiliency

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course covers the design aspects, material components, and performance issues that result in a roof system that not only weathers the storm but helps keep a building habitable. The increasing incidence of extreme weather events jeopardizes those networks whenever infrastructure damage occurs. Long-term sustainability necessitates an inherent and essential capacity for designing for resilience in the face of vulnerability and buildings that can adapt to the changing environments in which they were built.
