I'm a Passivist
Since starting back on my Architectural adventure, I've learned so much. Not only have I dived into bushing up on AutoCAD and learning SketchUP, I've also become totally obsessed with Passive Solar Housing Design and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). A few weeks ago, I couldn't have even told you what both terms even meant. In passive solar building design, windows, walls and floors are made to collect, store and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer.
After I master the computer programs a bit more and then start sending my resume around, I plan to start researching courses so I can get my certification in Passive Solar Design and LEED. Wish me luck!
