About L. Carl Fiocchi

Dr. Fiocchi’s interest and research is concerned with high performance energy efficient buildings with special emphasis on the building envelope and mechanical systems of both residential and commercial structures. Dr. Fiocchi’s experience in construction, coupled with the imminent threat of climate change, provided the impetus for this focus. Modernist architecture and its subset Brutalism, as it relates to the above, has been the recent and primary focus of his work.
