The Future Generation of NET ZERO Buildings from Zaha Hadid Architects
31 January 2024 at 4:00 pm (CET)

This webinar will focus on the new experimental design workflow developed by the ZHA Environmental & Sustainability Team to create efficient envelope designs able to target the Operational Net Zero status. At ZHA, they use computational design tools and different environmental analysis workflows to meet sustainability goals and energy demand requirements and inform envelope design decisions. The webinar will cover how ZHA applies Multi-objective optimization algorithms to influence the form-finding process and achieve high-performance buildings that meet Operational Net Zero status.

About the speaker: Carlos Bausá Martínez is a Senior Associate and Head of Sustainability at Zaha Hadid Architects.

Carlos joined Zaha Hadid Architects in 2019 as the Sustainability Team Lead, following almost five years at Foster + Partners, where he worked in the Specialist Modelling Group as an Environmental Design Analyst. His specialty in Computational Design and Environmental Simulation, combined with his expertise in sustainable architecture, allowed him to propose and found the ZHA In-house Sustainability Team to inform design decisions from the early stages in all ZHA’s Design Clusters.

After four years at ZHA, he became Senior Associate and Head of Sustainability and, together with his team, they coordinate sustainability assessment tasks with external consultancy firms to ensure all projects are delivered targeting reductions in environmental impact. The contribution of the Sustainability Team led by Carlos is helping ZHA target carbon reductions from Building Codes around the world and goals of International Sustainability Certifications like LEED, BREEAM, and the Chinese Three Star Rating System. His work with the ZHA Sustainability Team has been publicly shown in exhibitions in China and London, in different venues. Carlos has a background in architecture and computational design.
