About the Project
This project will study what are the effective climate-resilient design solutions in various climates in the world by learning from the traditional vernacular design knowledge, and explore how they could still work in the future climate. The project will be shaped to cater for the student’s original background with local climate and vernacular architectural design. Both numerical modelling (hygrothermal simulation at both building and urban scales) and field measurement will be conducted. Applicants are expected to have a very good bachelor’s or master’s degree in the subjects of architectural engineering, building physics, building service engineering, environmental engineering or related subject. Previous experience on building environmental modelling especially hygrothermal modelling is especially welcome. The PhD student will be supervised by a great interdisciplinary supervision committee, comprised of leading experts in the areas of building/urban environmental design, climate and meteorology at the University of Reading.
