Daniel A. Barber studies the relationship between architecture and the emergence of global environmental culture across the 20th century. He is currently the Currie C. and Thomas A. Barron Visiting Professor in Environment and Humanities at the Princeton Environmental Institute and School of Architecture, and an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.

His first book, A House in the Sun: Modern Architecture and Solar Energy in the Cold War, will be published by Oxford University Press in May 2016; a second book, on climate design methods in the 1950s, is forthcoming from Princeton University Press. He has published in Grey Room, Technology and Culture, and other journals and edited volumes, with an article forthcoming in Public Culture. Many of these articles can be found on his UPenn webpage. Daniel will be giving the keynote lecture at the conference “Thinking Architecture through Energy” at ENSA Paris-Belleville, sponsored by the French Minister of Culture in the context of the IPCC COP 21 meeting.
