Presenters for Wagdy Anis Symposium Talk Building Science
The time is fast approaching for the BSA's second annual Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science. Ahead of the event, the BSA asked speakers to share their thoughts on the future of building science, their memories of Anis, and what they're most anticipating about the two-day symposium.
Building the will around existing buildings as climate solutions
We cannot meet our climate goals without utilizing our greatest built and cultural assets: existing buildings. With many cities aiming to become carbon-free by 2050—and, in Boston, with 85 percent of the floorspace the city will need already built—we must embrace existing buildings as critical to climate action. Throughout the summer, the BSA community explored approaches to existing buildings as climate solutions, and underscored the urgency with which we need to develop and share strategies in order to respond to our climate crisis. Check out conversations on a variety of project types, find strategies and solutions for your work, and share with your colleagues and clients!
Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science
When principles of building science are followed, high-performance building enclosures reward building owners with energy conservation and durability, while avoiding risk of condensation and other impediments to the overall performance of the building.
The BSA Building Enclosure Council is excited to announce the Wagdy Anis Symposium on Building Science. This two-day hybrid conference will consist of eight technical sessions and an in-person reception at BSA Space. Internationally recognized experts on building enclosure are coming together to lead technical sessions, join dynamic conversations, and share case studies. Don’t miss this spirited dialogue on the benefits and challenges of achieving well-designed building enclosures!
