GRIT/Building Solutions
A 3-part discussion on practical ways to reduce waste in design & construction.

5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Opsis Architecture
Join us for HEATWAVE, an innovative research project conducted by Portland State University’s Research-based Design Initiative, Bynum Laboratories and Opsis Architecture. The relationship between people and the control systems in a building is a critical factor in overall building energy performance. Inspired by the need to have better “behaved” occupants, the team embarked on a research project to study how gamified virtual reality could build upon the user’s emotional relationship with a space, improving their ability and desire to effectively utilize passive and advanced systems such as shades, ceiling fans, lighting controls, and operable windows.
