Women in Sustainable Architecture: Judit Kimpian
Director at Aedas
Judit Kimpian is director of sustainable architecture and research at Aedas and has been working to drive the practice’s design approach with the view to improving the whole-life value of buildings.
At Aedas, Kimpian has built up a team of specialists who look to incorporate sustainable construction methods into the design process through life-cycle modelling and post-occupancy evaluation. This team has worked on projects from small-scale residences to large-scale masterplans. She also co‑ordinates the practice’s implementation of the UK’s Soft Landings programme and is a regular speaker at conferences worldwide.
With a background in design and virtual information modelling, she leads cross-industry collaborations such as the RIBA CIBSE platform CarbonBuzz with the intention of closing the performance gap between design expectations and actual outcomes.
