Performance Network Webinar, with Foster and Partners’ Arpan Bakshi

Ze Nunes has been invited to present a webinar entitled “Visualising Sound to Improve Open Window Performance".  Arpan Bakshi, Performance Evangelist for Foster and Partners spotted Ze’s posts on linked in and found some shared interests. Arpan specialises in sustainability performance and organises the Performance Network.

This online seminar on June 2nd will address energy usage within buildings from ventilation systems and how architects can design for naturally ventilated offices, classrooms and other room types.  How can you treat the sound coming into a building to reduce noise levels? Which window types work better than others? 

Current understanding of the performance of open windows is low, mainly because the acoustics of these buildings is difficult to get to grips with. Here, Ze answers the key questions and helps you to better understand how to treat windows at the design stage - ultimately leading to improved energy usage and more efficient buildings. The visualisation of sound; the acoustic performance of open windows; clever mathematics; incredible software; and our retro toy, the Slinky, all play a part in this forward thinking webinar. 

Date & Time: Thursday June 2, 2016; 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM PDT (UK is 8 hours ahead of Pacific Time).
