Kjell Anderson AIA, LEED Fellow, practices architecture and serves as a Principal and the Director of Sustainable Design at LMN Architects in Seattle. He contributes to all LMN projects, assisting teams to assist our client to set and exceed ambitious client’s sustainability goals, incorporating resilience, future-proofing, and climate-mitigating design. His book “Design Energy Simulation for Architects” was written to expand and better define the field of early-design-centric energy simulations, including daylighting, airflow, whole-building, and urban modeling. Over 20 years in practice, he has designed buildings in many countries, regions and climates, adapting designs to the strengths of each one. He keynoted the 2016 SimBuild energy modeling conference, and has presented at the AIA+2030 Series, Greenbuild, ASHRAE, and the AIA Convention along with many webcasts with BuildingGreen and other organizations.
He currently serves on the Washington State Building Code Council and Chairs the Energy Code Technical Advisory Group, as well as serving on the AIA National Energy Leadership Group. He helped author the AIA’s first statement on climate change as well as the 2018 AIA Energy Modeling Design Guide. He also serves on an IBPSA committee (www.ProjectStasio.com) that hosts a website to crowd-source outstanding simulation outputs, pairing them with performance-based questions that architects may have not known they could ask.
