Passive House: Past, Present, and Future

Katrin Klingenberg is an architect with “heavy building science leanings” who has driven adoption of the Phius Standard over the past 20 years. She built the first passive house in the United States in 2003 in Champaign-Urbana and has helped develop and adopt passive building methodology since. This presentation will explore the history and impact of passive building design theory, technology and standards and their impact on building design and speculate what will drive the design and construction of the built environment over the next few decades.
