Architecture schools are increasingly focused on their students’ ability to explore building performance from the early stages of design. We launched Sefaira Architecture in July of 2012 and almost immediately we were approached by a number of architecture schools asking us to provide their students with access to it. Students were struggling trying to use the traditional tools that were available, tools designed for energy modeling experts, not for architects.

Architecture schools were quick to recognize that Sefaira Architecture was an ideal tool that would allow their architecture students to learn and explore Performance-Based Design.

In July of 2014, we launched the Sefaira Education Program (SEP) and now, less than two years later, we have more than 130 educational institutions enrolled in SEP spanning 28 countries.


SEP participants have noted that the addition of Sefaira in their curriculum has strengthened the course offering from previous ones and that students are very enthused by the progress and development of their analytical skills.
