Daniel Chung coordinates and teaches building technology courses and upper level studios in the Architecture Program such as Environmental Systems, Building Systems Integration and the Comprehensive Design Studio. His technology courses focus on developing analytical skills related to building science and performance to help inform and enhance the building design process. These technical skills are then incorporated into the Comprehensive Design Studios. Analysis and computer simulation are used to help students understand the impact and integration of technical design solutions for building systems such as lighting, structural and HVAC systems to harness the maximum beneficial impact and efficiency in their design proposals.
Mr. Chung has professional licenses and advanced academic degrees in both architecture and engineering. His current research area focuses on building simulation, analysis and verification of high performance buildings. Research has had an emphasis on developing improved numerical modeling techniques to increase accuracy and predication capabilities of simulation environments in regards to airflow and energy modeling using both macroscopic and CFD modeling strategies. Past research experience has included grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Prior to joining the full-time faculty Mr. Chung taught as an adjunct in both the engineering and architecture programs while practicing as a licensed architect and structural engineer in Philadelphia. His work as an architect at MGA Partners and as an engineer at Keast & Hood Co. in Philadelphia focused mostly on buildings for higher education and historic structures. As an engineer at Dewhurst MacFarlane in New York City he specialized in structural glazing and façade engineering.
