University of Southern California: The Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research
Architecture/Engineering integration optimized with CFD.
While the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research reduces energy consumption by 30 percent through use of chilled beams alone, this Laboratory of the Year honoree perhaps most prominently demonstrates the successful realization of a design concept integrated with optimal envelope and mechanical system performance. AEI provided CFD energy performance and daylight analyses allowing the double skin façade air cavity ventilation to reduce heat gain in warm temperatures and create an insulating layer when it’s cool.
