Timur Dogan is an architect, building scientist, and educator. His research expertise is in daylighting, energy modeling, passive climate control strategies, and performance driven design workflows in both urban and architectural scale. His work empowers non-specialized architects and urban designers to optimize their design proposals regarding their energy demand and supply, comfort, and livability. To date, he has authored and coauthored several books, journal papers, and peer reviewed scientific articles.
Dogan recently completed his PhD in Building Technology at MIT and was a Presidential Fellow during that time. Prior to his work at MIT, he received a Diploma in Architecture from the TU Darmstadt and a Master in Design Studies from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Prior to his move to MIT, he was an assistant lecturer and researcher at the TU Darmstadt and the GSD. He worked for KSP Architekten, Wandel Hoefer Lorch Architekten and Transsolar. His current research interests include design, performance simulation and computer science.
