The creative quality of our work is greatly enriched by the quality of our graduate students. New to the Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory is Max Moriyama. As a graduate student in the Department of Architecture, Max is particularly well-suited for BioBE. Max joins the BioBE CEnter with a B.A. in Biology from UC Berkeley and a desire to explore the potential for building design as informed by the metaphoric correlation between the systems of architecture and those of the natural world.
