Prof.ir. P.G. Luscuere
Professor of Building Physics and Services - Department of Architectural Engineering + Technology
Peter Luscuere (1955) is professor of Building Physics and Services at Delft University of Technology and visiting Professor to Tianjin University in China. The research of the Building Physics & Services group he is heading is focused on: Energy transition, Exergy, Comfort, Building Physical properties of materials and Sustainability. He concentrates on the integration of building-service concepts in the architectural design process and on creating greater levels of understanding between the two disciplines.
As director at Royal Haskoning he was responsible for many of the company’s projects in Health Care as well as the development of a companywide Cradle to Cradle inspired program on sustainability. In 2010, he established an independent consulting business Inspired Ambitions, while continuing his academic work. He developed a holistic approach ‘Beyond Sustainability’ in which renewability of natural resources for the Built Environment: Energy, Water, Air, Topsoil, Materials and Space is investigated and confronted with consequences on: Ecology, Economy and Equity.
During 2016 he has been chairing the Transition Pathway Circular Economy within the Roadmap Next Economy, a project with Jeremy Rifkin for the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague. At this moment, the concept of ‘Beyond Circularity’ is further developed.
Peter Luscuere is member of the Circular Built Environment Hub of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment.
