Building Environment cluster works on comfortable environment at building scale and beyond and facilitates researches and seeks for solutions for improving building systems, building performance, and sustainable technologies. 

  Building Science Laboratory  

Director | Byung-Sean KIM | |

The environment is highly important in architecture because of the integral relationship between human life and the environment. We in the Building Science Laboratory take an approach using the scientific method to make comfortable environments for people.

We address problems through simulations of sunshine, view, ventilation, and energy and propose alternatives for optimized environments.

Main Research Areas

> Built environment

> Heating, Ventilating and Air conditioning systems

> Energy simulation in building design

> Passive systems

> Building performance evaluation

  Smart Evolution Eco Design for sustainability (SEEDs) Laboratory  

Director | Seung-Bok LEIGH | |

To achieve the goal of “sustainable” architecture, architectural design must seek to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, and development space. Conscious approaches to energy and  

ecological conservation in the design of the built environment is a necessary step in the building sector.

Our laboratory has developed various ecological architectural technologies such as a natural ventilation system, a thermal storage system, a building skin system, and an atrium system etc., which can be applied to modern architecture.

Main Research Areas

> Sustainable architecture design process and technique

> Ecological analysis of climate and building site

> Ecological landscape design

> Natural ventilation system and natural lighting system of a building

> Innovative façade system design

> Energy efficient and ecological architectural design

> Performance evaluation and sustainable architecture guideline for green building design

  Architectural Environment (AE) Laboratory  

Director | Tae Yeon KIM | |

Our goal is to predict thermal comfort, IAQ, energy performance, environmental loads of humans and civil environment and to provide solutions to environmental problems applicable to existing buildings and analyze the effectiveness through building design and services. Ultimately, we research techniques and methods of optimization that can satisfy residents’ comfort and provide the most efficiency.

Main Research Areas

> Estimation of human thermal comfort by introduction of a physiologic body model

> Appraisal of energy performance in air conditioning systems

> Assessment of IAQ and ventilation performance

> Analysis and consideration of countermeasures in the outdoors by building conditions

> Analysis of outdoor thermal and air environments of green building designs

  Building Environment & Materials (BEM) Laboratory  

Director | Sumin KIM | |

BEM has studied for improvement of building environment performance and building energy reduction technology using building materials. Especially, we have conducted a variety of researches on building materials with application of phase change materials (PCMs) and carbon-based materials to improve the energy efficiency and built environment of the buildings. In addition, our current research works are focused on technologies for improving the performance of living-friendly building, hygrothermal performance of buildings, and development of passive building technology. The pursuit of comfort in buildings have led to the control of pollutants and moisture problem; the development of absorbent materials for pollutants utilizing porous materials or environmentally-friendly building materials, and optimization of building materials to improve hygrothermal performance were being studied in BEM.

Main Research Areas

> Building environment performance and using eco-friendly building materials

> Improving energy efficiency using Phase change materials (PCM)

> Development of passive building technology based on building materials

> Technologies for improving the performance of living-friendly building with porous materials

> Optimization of building materials to improve hygrothermal performance
