Herman Calleja has practiced as an architect before joining the SED M.Arch programme at the AA, graduating with distinction in 2012. Since then he has worked as an Environmental Consultant at BDSP/ChapmanBDSP assisting various design teams with regards to occupant comfort, façade design, CFD analysis, daylighting and other passive design strategies. Herman has worked on a variety of projects with different architects including Foster+Partners, RSH+P, Santiago Calatrava and Grafton Architects. His main area of interest is the combination of climate-based daylighting modelling with the assessment of occupant thermal comfort through a parametric design platform. Pursuing this research Herman has participated in various workshops and conferences including Smart Geometry, PLEA and NCEUB.
