Meet Christoph Reinhart, Ph.D.,

Christoph Reinhart, Ph.D., Professor of Architecture, Director, Building Technology Program and Sustainable Design Lab, MIT.

Dr. Reinhart presented a lecture November 25, 2019 (Science for the Public Lecture Series) on the work of his famous Sustainable Design Lab. That work emphasizes a multi-dimensional design approach to encompass energy-efficient architecture, pedestrian-friendly access to shops, entertainment, work and schools, and vibrant outdoor spaces. In this presentation, Dr. Reinhart outlined such a model based on a neighborhood proposal in Boston.

Professor Reinhart is an international leader in urban design, especially recognized for architectural “daylighting”—the use of natural light to illuminate building interiors—and urban-level environmental building performance analysis. The design tools developed by the Reinhart lab are used by architects and urban planners in more than 90 countries.
