Soo Jeong Jo, assistant professor of architecture, is part of the team of LSU researchers led by Arup Bhattacharya, LSU Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management assistant professor, researching solar power farming in the Louisiana thanks to a $94,000 grant from the Institute for Energy Innovations.
Jo‘s research focuses on high-performance design based on building performance simulations (BPS) specifically for the early stages of architectural design. Through her research she explores the interactions between science and architectural design.
“I will work on collecting the user input and design exploration for the solar farm structure,” she said. “We are also planning to engage my design studio in this process.”
