Learning Objectives
Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:


1. Explain the primary reasons to design a building for natural ventilation.
2. Understand how cost, comfort issues, and conventional design processes inform the design for natural ventilation.
3. Understand how to mitigate overheating and chilling, and address outdoor air quality and noise pollution when designing for natural ventilation.
4. Recognize the complexity of historic designs for natural ventilation; why its present reputation for unpredictability is a call for creative, corrective strategies; and how both dictate a need for straightforward operating rules.

Target Cities is EcoDistricts’ new two-year partnership with nine development projects across seven North American cities and works to drive district-scale community regeneration and create replicable models for next-generation urban revitalization.

Participants include some of North America’s most innovative and influential cities including Atlanta, Boston, Cambridge, Denver, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Ontario and Washington, D.C.

The program represents more than 60 project partners collaborating to transform more than 1,300 acres of existing neighborhoods, business districts, historical precincts, brownfield sites, and university campuses.
