Chris Humann is the co-founder and CTO of Terrestrial Light holding a Master of Architecture degree from UC Berkeley. Prior to starting Terrestrial Light, Chris worked at Loisos+Ubbelohde, a firm specializing in high performance buildings, providing architectural consulting, design and research with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability. Chris is also the founding principal of East Bay Design and Architecture where he designed residential homes, places of worship and commercial projects in addition to consulting as an expert in daylight integration and simulation. An avid tinkerer and ocean sailor, Chris enjoys contemplating and drawing parallels between a well trimmed sailboat and a building responding dynamically and sensitively to their local environments; both 'sailing' optimally and in balance with the prevailing and forecasted conditions of place and time.
