This web-based library of mixed-mode case studies was developed by the
Center for the Built Environment (CBE)
at the University of California, Berkeley. This project is part of our ongoing
effort to provide timely, unbiased information on promising new building
and design techniques. With this website we hope to provide detailed
precedents that designers and building owners can use as examples, to demonstrate
naturally ventilated and mixed-mode buildings work in practice, and to
help practitioners overcome barriers to implementation.
CBE's research is supported and directed by CBE's Industry Partners,
a consortium of leading building industry firms and organizations committed
the performance of non-residential buildings. Additional support is provided
by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and several institutional partners.
This site was produced and is currently maintained by the Mixed-Mode
Systems Project Team:
Gail Brager, Ph.D.
Professor, Dept. of Architecture
CBE Partner Relations and Communications
We would also like to gratefully acknowledge the contributions of the
people who helped with both the content and website development throughout
this project: Margaret Pigman, Mara Baum, Ron Dean, Andrew Kuehler, Trista Little, Marie Sorensen, and Gabriel
We are especially grateful to our CBE Partners for funding this project.
