Emir A. Pekdemir
Emir is a leader in façade analytics at Buro Happold where he has spent the last nearly 10 years of his career providing integrated design solutions for healthier, high performance buildings.
With a technical background in architecture and architectural engineering, Emir uses advanced building simulation tools to successfully design projects with dynamic and passive facades; ensuring those solutions work in tandem with high performance MEP systems to provide superior indoor environmental air quality.
As an ASHRAE certified Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) and LEEP AP BD+C, he is skilled in dynamic energy and airflow modeling, hygrothermal modeling, daylight/glare simulations and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Emir is a professor at Pratt Institute and is an active speaker regionally and globally – including at conferences such as Facades+, the Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats (CTBUH), ASHRAE and IBPSA, as well as guest lecturing at multiple universities.
