Kiel Moe will present a lecture in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 21, 2015. The talk is free and open to the public.

Kiel Moe is a registered practicing architect and Associate Professor of Architecture & Energy in the Department of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. His research and teaching focus on an agenda for design and energy that is at once more ecologically and architecturally ambitious, emphasizing both buildings as manifestations of large-scale energy systems as well as overlooked and discrete thermal parameters in buildings.

Moe was the 2009-10 Gorham P. Stevens Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture as well as the 2012 Barbara and Andrew Senchak MacDowell Colony Fellow. He received the 2013 Boston Design Biennial award, the 2011 Architecture League of New York Prize, the 2011 AIA National Young Architect award and numerous design awards for individual projects from institutions such as the AIA and the Boston Society of Architects. In 2015, he will be a member of the Arctic Circle expedition residency in Svalbard.

Moe recently published a fifth book entitled Insulating Modernism: Isolated and Non-Isolated Thermodynamics in Architecture (2014). He is completing a sixth book, a technical manual on The Hierarchy of Energy in Architecture: Emergy Analysis with Ravi S. Srinivasan and a seventh, PLOT: The Matter of Urbanization | Central Park and the Empire State Building with Jane Hutton (2015). He is also the author of Convergence: An Architectural Agenda for Energy (2013), Thermally Active Surfaces in Architecture (2010) and Integrated Design in Contemporary Architecture (2008).

Moe received his B.Arch. from the University of Cincinnati, his M.Arch. from University of Virginia, and his M.Des. in Design and Environmental Studies from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design Advanced Studies Program.
