Ulrike Passe Presents at Alvar Aalto Meeting on Contemporary Architecture

Ulrike Passe, an Iowa State University associate professor of architecture, presented her paper on “Performance, data and the expanding field of sustainable design” at the 6th International Alvar Aalto Meeting on Contemporary Architecture – Technology and Humanism organized by the Alvar Aalto Academy at the Town Hall in Seinajoki, Finland, which was designed by Aalto in 1962.

Passe presented the theoretical framework which relates her interdisciplinary research into sustainable neighborhoods to architectural design thinking. Her paper supports the functions that quantitative and qualitative methods serve in design thinking by establishing four frames of overarching principals: data and perception, narrative and policy, atmosphere and urban typology, and technology and behavior.
