Kiel Moe is a registered practicing architect and Associate Professor of Architecture & Energy in the Department of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. At the GSD, Moe teaches and coordinates core design studios, seminars on Forms of Energy, and lectures on architecture and energy.

His research and pedagogy focuses on an agenda for design and energy that is at once more ecologically and architecturally ambitious. As such, he focuses on both buildings as manifestations of large scale energy systems as well as overlooked and discrete thermal parameters in buildings that yet have great impact on the power and thermodynamic depth of architecture. This research is the basis for his design research and his design practice.

In recognition of his design and research, he was the 2009-10 Gorham P. Stevens Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture as well as the 2012 Barbara and Andrew Senchak Fellow MacDowell Colony. In 2015, he will be a member of the Arctic Circle expedition residency in Svalbard. He received the 2013 Boston Design Biennial award, the 2011 Architecture League of New York Prize, the 2011 AIA National Young Architect award, and numerous design awards for individual projects from the AIA, North American Wood Design Awards, and Boston Society of Architects, amongst others. He is recipient of Junior Faculty research grants at the GSD, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, the AIA Upjohn grant program, the Boston Society of Architects Architectural Research program, the AIA RFP grant program, the Northeastern University Provost Faculty Development program. In recognition of his pedagogy and teaching, Moe was awarded the 2010 ACSA/AIAS New Faculty Teaching Award.

He is author of multiple books. He recently published a fifth book entitled Insulating Modernism: Isolated and Non-Isolated Thermodynamics in Architecture, Birkhauser, 2014. He is completing a sixth book, a technical manual on The Hierarchy of Energy in Architecture: Emergy Analysis with Ravi S. Srinivasan (2015) and, a seventh, PLOT: The Matter of Urbanization | Central Park and the Empire State Building, with Jane Hutton (2015). He is also author of Convergence: An Architectural Agenda for Energy (2013), Thermally Active Surfaces in Architecture (2010) and Integrated Design in Contemporary Architecture (2008). He was co-editor of Building Systems: Design Technology & Society (2012).
