Daniel Chung, PhD, PE, RA, LEED AP
Associate Professor



URBN Center, 4A20A

Daniel Chung coordinates and teaches building technology courses and upper level studios in the Architecture Program such as Environmental Systems, Building Systems Integration and the Comprehensive Design Studio. His technology courses focus on developing analytical skills related to building science and performance to help inform and enhance the building design process. These technical skills are then incorporated into the Comprehensive Design Studios. Analysis and computer simulation are used to help students understand the impact and integration of technical design solutions for building systems such as lighting, structural and HVAC systems to harness the maximum beneficial impact and efficiency in their design proposals.

Dr. Chung has professional licenses and advanced academic degrees in both architecture (M.Arch) and engineering (PhD & MSE). His current research area focuses on building simulation, analysis and verification of building envelopes in both historic and new buildings to better predict the effects of climate change on buildings.  Degradation, stochastic, and regression analyses have been used to study the probabilistic distribution and long term behavior of building envelopes.

Dr. Chung is a licensed architect and structural engineer in Pennsylvania. His work as an architect at MGA Partners and as an engineer at Keast & Hood Co. in Philadelphia focused mostly on buildings for higher education and historic structures. As an engineer at Dewhurst MacFarlane in New York City he specialized in structural glazing and façade engineering.
