Office, Health and Change.

L’effetto dello spazio ufficio e delle attrezzature sulla salute fisica e psicosociale.

L’aumento della produttività e la riduzione dei costi hanno portato una intensificazione dei ritmi di lavoro, spesso in ambienti non ottimali per ottenere il miglior rendimento.

Soluzioni come Job and Desk Sharing, Multi Space, Coworking Spaces o Flexible Offices offrono opportunità per processi di lavoro più efficienti, ma richiedono soluzioni progettuali specifiche, per garantire il comfort e l’ergonomia necessari.

Durante l’evento verranno fornite informazioni per ottenere ambienti lavorativi confortevoli e salubri, ottimizzando i fattori che influiscono sul benessere fisico e mentale. Verranno inoltre mostrati esempi concreti di progettazione partecipativa, misura del comfort e soluzioni di arredo per garantire il «benessere» nel proprio ambiente lavorativo.

Die Auswirkungen von Büroräumen und Geräten auf die körperliche und psychosoziale Gesundheit.

Produktivitätssteigerungen und Kostensenkungen führen zu einer Steigerung des Arbeitstempos, oft in nicht optimalen Umgebungen, um die beste Effizienz zu erreichen.

Lösungen wie Job- und Desk Sharing, Multi Space, Coworking Spaces oder Flexible Offices bieten Möglichkeiten für effizientere Arbeitsprozesse, erfordern jedoch spezielle Designlösungen, um den erforderlichen Komfort und die Ergonomie zu gewährleisten.

Während der Veranstaltung werden Informationen gegeben, um ein komfortables und gesundes Arbeitsumfeld zu schaffen und die Faktoren zu optimieren, die das körperliche und geistige Wohlbefinden beeinflussen. Darüber hinaus werden konkrete Beispiele für partizipatives Design, Komfortmessung und Einrichtungslösungen gezeigt, um “Wohlbefinden” im Arbeitsumfeld zu gewährleisten.

Join us in Malaga for a journey into Sustainability 4.0

Industry 4.0 is the name given to the new era of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, including the Internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical systems, cloud- and cognitive computing. This is or it is expected to be the fourth industrial revolution … Ok, nice, but what about sustainability? When it comes to sustainability, still today the cornerstones of the discussion are the concept of a sustainable development (1987, 31 years ago) and the triple bottom line (1994, 24 years ago)…

El Palmeral de Las Sorpresas (Junquera Arquitectos) – Port of Malaga

With RESTORE we are going further, envisioning a restorative/regenerative sustainability, where we are required to do “more good” instead of “less bad” if we really intend to subvert the current pace in the fight against the climate change, recovering an approach that is both human and natural. We know that the building industry is rapidly moving towards a full digitalization, where tools (the means) look sometimes more important than purposes. How can digitalization follow through this transition in the concept of sustainability? Is the new generation of skilled professionals of the digital design age capable to embed the new principles of sustainability in their every day work? How can we restore a balanced relationship between humans and nature – inside and outside our buildings, districts, communities – exploiting the new tools that industry 4.0 make us available? Is a (digital) sustainability 4.0 feasible?

Join us in Malaga next 15-19 October for the International Conference on Regenerative Design in the Digital Practice to discover it 😉

The International Trainers

Emanuele Naboni (KADK), Chris Mackey (Ladybug Tools and Payette, USA),  Amanda Sturgeon (International Living Future Institute, USA), Negendhal Kristoffer (BIG, Denmark), Angela Loder (International WELL Building Institute, USA), Martin Brown(Fairsnape, UK), Ata Chokhachian (TU Munich, Germany), Daniele Santucci (TU Munich, Germany), Munch-Peterson Palle (Henning Larsen and KADK, Denmark), Alexander Hollberg (ETH Zürich, Switzerland), Panu Pasanen (One Click LCA, Finland), Wilmer Pasut (Eurac Research, Italy).

Regenerative Design: from Theory to the Digital Practice.

The aim of the conferences and the training school is the digital implementation of Regenerative Sustainable Design principles in the transformation of existing sites. Via the use of freeware digital parametric modelling, the challenges are to improve outdoor microclimate qualities and the indoor wellbeing, operating a transformation that responds to the criteria of Circular Economy.

The research and design project will represent, in this regard, an opportunity for enhancing life in all its manifestations. This presumes shifting the focus from a solely based human-centred design process into a nature-centred one, where “people and buildings can commit to a healthy relationship with the environment where they are placed”. Such approaches are discussed in morning conferences and in the afternoon scientific driven design developments.

The Barrio of La Luz, which was built after 1960 in Malaga is used as a reference. The site is a polluted heat-island, disconnected from sea breezes, with a spread hardscape, and with no presence of natural elements. Furthermore, the urban dwellers experience poor wellbeing due to the deprived quality of the units, being these modified by tenants often leading to obstructing natural ventilation and light. The projection of climate change will further exacerbate such outdoor and indoor conditions, and there is a need for an example of interventions that are scalable to the Spanish national level.

20 trainees will form four groups that will develop four competing transformation design proposals. The design that shows a qualitative creative solution with the higher simulated performances will be awarded. Criteria for evaluation will also include the quality of the digital modelling phases and the dynamics of development of the integrated strategies. To assess the projects’ success, the jury is composed of a mix of international and local professionals and scientist, with experience in architecture, performance and modelling.
