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 😉

La World Green Building Week del Collaborative.

La World Green Building Week (24 – 30 settembre 2018) è un evento annuale che motiva e dà a tutti noi la possibilità di realizzare edifici più ecologici.

La WGBW ci chiama tutti all’azione, per prendere provvedimenti e impegnarci a creare un cambiamento nelle case che costruiamo, affittiamo o nelle quali viviamo. Tutti noi possiamo fare qualcosa per rendere la nostra casa una casa più verde, più sana e più efficiente dal punto di vista energetico.

Sapevi che gli edifici, incluse le case in cui viviamo, rappresentano circa il 40% del consumo energetico globale? Questo è oltre un terzo delle emissioni mondiali di gas serra. Il consumo medio di elettricità globale per nucleo familiare è di 3.500 kWh – ovvero 2,6 tonnellate di CO2 o l’equivalente di 10.300 km percorsi da un’automobile media. Se tutti riducessimo il consumo del 20%, il risparmio energetico sarebbe pari a poco più di mezzo metro di CO2 per famiglia: equivalgono a 2.050 km di guida o 21,5 bombole di propano utilizzate per i barbecue casalinghi. Dai un’occhiata a questo pratico calcolatore e calcola la tua impronta di carbonio. Ti torna?

Tutti possono fare qualcosa per rendere la loro casa più verde. Non possiamo cambiare il mondo da un giorno all’altro, ma tutti possiamo fare la nostra parte, per quanto piccola sia all’inizio. Puoi risparmiare energia e denaro, creare uno spazio più sano in cui vivere e rendere il pianeta una casa più verde, migliore e più sicura per le generazioni a venire. È facile quando sai come.

Il Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy partecipa alla WGBW 2018 con due attività:

“Costruire il vivere in “green” out-indoor”, organizzato da Istituto Nazionale di Bioarchitettura (INBAR), con un’introduzione su Living Building Challenge di Francesco Perozzo, LBC Ambassador e membro del Collaborative.

Venerdì 28.09 ore 15-18
Sala Conferenze Basement
Via Giorgio Giulini, 6, Milano
Programma
L’evento sarà anche trasmesso in streaming sulla pagina Facebook di INBAR qui.

L’evento ha come obiettivo la diffusione al grande pubblico dei parametri e criteri legati alla costruzione edilizia a basso impatto sulla salute e sull’ambiente e intende spiegare queste problematiche grazie alla partecipazione di alcuni rappresentanti dei protocolli energetici ambientali più importanti, di professionisti esperti del settore e di aziende in linea con questi principi.

LBCCI Monthly meeting (la riunione mensile del Collaborative)

Il Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy (LBCC Italy) è un gruppo di professionisti locali volontari impegnati per la sostenibilità, la formazione e l’attuazione del Living Building Challenge. Il LBCC Italy fornisce un forum unico di confronto “dal vivo” per facilitare il cambiamento nell’ambiente costruito. LBC è lo standard di sostenibilità più avanzato al mondo. Mentre al momento ci sono pochi edifici certificati LBC, il numero di gruppi che sta cercando di realizzare in varie parti del mondo le condizioni del Living Building Challenge cresce ogni anno.

Do you have experience in Grasshopper based integrated design? If the answer is yes to any of this question, and you would like to exchange and further develop your research and practical skills in an intensive design competition, this Training School in Malaga (15th to 19th of October, 2019) is for you. By the way, you will be co-funded with 800 euros to participate in 5 days of pure design and modelling,  digital tutorials from the international trainers and scientific conferences.

Click here for details and apply by August 5th, 2018.

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.
