About Us

This web-based library of mixed-mode case studies was developed by the Center for the Built Environment (CBE) at the University of California, Berkeley. This project is part of our ongoing effort to provide timely, unbiased information on promising new building technologies and design techniques. With this website we hope to provide detailed precedents that designers and building owners can use as examples, to demonstrate how naturally ventilated and mixed-mode buildings work in practice, and to help practitioners overcome barriers to implementation.

CBE's research is supported and directed by CBE's Industry Partners, a consortium of leading building industry firms and organizations committed to improving the performance of non-residential buildings. Additional support is provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and several institutional partners.

This site was produced and is currently maintained by the Mixed-Mode Systems Project Team:

Gail Brager, Ph.D.
Professor, Dept. of Architecture
Principal Investigator

David Lehrer
CBE Partner Relations and Communications
Site Design

We would also like to gratefully acknowledge the contributions of the people who helped with both the content and website development throughout this project: Margaret Pigman, Mara Baum, Ron Dean, Andrew Kuehler, Trista Little, Marie Sorensen, and Gabriel Arboleda.

We are especially grateful to our CBE Partners for funding this project.
