Transsolar is an international climate engineering firm determined to create exceptional, highly comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces with a positive environmental impact. They believe that the very measures taken to create remarkable architecture can simultaneously enhance human experience and minimize resource use. To them, sustainability is not separate from design, but an indispensable component that enhances the experience of the built environment.
They are vision facilitators, idea generators, and design integrators. Their engineers are not just experts in basic physical principles; their creativity enables the collaboration necessary to develop deeply integrated comfort and energy concepts. Beginning from a project’s earliest conception, they work alongside the client, architect, design team, and the most vital participants of all – the occupants. They study the seasonal behaviour of sun, wind, heat, light and other energy flows in and around the building, and formulate concepts based on the complex interdependence of the local climate, user needs, architectural design and engineered systems.
Jochen Lam studied mechanical engineering at the University of Stuttgart and joined Transsolar’s Stuttgart office in 2013. In 2016 he worked in Transsolar New York office for one year. Jochen is part of the TRNSYS development team and an expert in thermal modelling of buildings and systems. Besides his consulting work, he gives lectures and workshops at European universities.
