In partnership with K. Brandt Knapp, Knowlton School alum Jerome W. Haferd (BSARCH ’07) won the $10,000 Grand Prize for the #ZeroThreshold Design Competition for their entry “SIDE by SIDE : a multi-use, multi-abled commons.” #ZeroThreshold is part of an architecture and urban design initiative to celebrate accessibility as a generator of design, and for the Old Brooklyn neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio to build a proposal that takes the lead in the future of this movement.

The Legacy House Project is the vision of Curtis J. Moody, FAIA, NOMA, NCARB, LEED AP (BSARCH ’73), Founder and CEO of Moody Nolan. “We had the desire to see something more tangible in our charitable giving,” stated Moody. “We determined that we are architects—and what we do is design—so why don’t we do something that is within our wheelhouse?”

The world’s building sector is currently responsible for approximately one-third of global CO2 emissions. Buildings also provide stable indoor climates designed for human comfort. Paradoxically, these two facts work against one another: the carbon emitted to provide comfortable indoor climates simultaneously leads to global warming. While Adaptive Thermal Comfort (ATC), also referred to as mixed-mode building, is a new paradigm for climate change adaptation and building comfort, its understanding and application is limited in the United States. Recipient of a prestigious 2019-2020 Fulbright Scholar Award to Australia, Assistant Professor of Architecture Andrew Cruse will carry out his research, entitled “Promoting Indoor Climate Change,” at the University of Technology Sydney from March – June 2020. Cruse will collaborate with Leena Thomas, professor at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), who co-developed the Building Occupant Survey System (BOSSA), to explore ways to reduce building energy by allowing indoor climates to vary based on exterior weather.
