Welcome to the Building Science Group
We are an interdisciplinary team within KIT’s Faculty of Architecture working in the fields of building physics and technical building services. Our mission in research and education is to promote sustainable solutions for both new and existing buildings that offer long-term high level comfort combined with a minimum impact on energy resources and the environment. Our focus is on integrated building and energy concepts – a synthesis of architectural design optimized for high indoor environmental quality and innovative solutions for energy supply with a low primary energy consumption. Miscellaneous planning tools like building simulation or our artificial sky are used for performance assessments or to answer specific questions within the decision-making process.
