The RESTORE Challenge.

Join us for the mid-term (un)conference in Bolzano, March 14th, 2019.

Sustainable buildings and facilities are critical to a future that is socially just, ecologically restorative, culturally rich and economically viable within the climate change context. Despite over a decade of strategies and programmes, progress on built environment sustainability fails to address these key issues. Consequently, the built environment sector no longer has the luxury of being incrementally less bad, but, with urgency, needs to adopt net-positive, restorative sustainability thinking to incrementally do ‘more good’.

The RESTORE Action affects a paradigm shift towards restorative sustainability for new and existing buildings across Europe, promoting forward thinking and multidisciplinary knowledge, leading to solutions that celebrate the richness of
design creativity while enhancing users’ experience, comfort, health, wellbeing and satisfaction inside and outside buildings, and in harmony with urban and natural ecosystems, reconnecting users to nature.

In 2015, world leaders at an historic UN Summit adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In 2016, the Paris Agreement on climate change entered into force, addressing the need to limit the rise of global temperatures.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.

Main goal of the event is to analyse through a multidisciplinary collaboration and using an edutainment approach how the RESTORE Action is aligned or may be better aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and can effectively contribute to their achievement.

This event is based upon work from COST Action RESTORE CA16114, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework. Its mission is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities.

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.

FACE3 | Final event

Interreg Italy-Austria FACEcamp project has offered a training course aimed at increasing the know-how of companies and freelance professionals operating in the field of complex technological building façades. The course aimed to transfer to freelance professionals and technical staff of construction companies, concepts and innovative methods in the sector of complex technological façades. The educational program had a complete structure regarding the covered topics, to provide innovative concepts, tools and methods, while stimulating the growth of local skills in the construction sector, increasingly subject to environmental and energy regulations.

The course was divided into 6 units, for a total of 15 days. It was characterized by a strong orientation to practice with the participation of experienced speakers, well-known for their skills in the field. All contents have been conceived and designed to address the main themes of concept, design, calculation, production, installation and maintenance of complex building facades. A study trip to Milan was organized to closely analyse significant examples of technological innovation in the field of façades.

We are inviting you to the final event with public presentations of the results, that will take place on Thursday, December 6th, h 10-17 at NOI Techpark, Bolzano (Italy). You can download the full program here.

When biophilia meets biomimicry.

What does good look like? Join the International Living Future Institute in Paris at Biomim’expo next October, 23rd for a workshop on “Creating Biophilic Buildings for a Regenerative Future

October 23, 2018 – Paris, France
at Biomim’expo 2018, Cité des sciences et de l’industrie de La Villette
#S3 – LOTUS A3 – 14:30-16:00 – Creating Biophilic Buildings for a Regenerative Future, by the International Living Future Institute.

As part of our Living Building Challenge – workshop series, Living Future Europe, will deliver a series of workshops to enable participants to expand their regenerative design capabilities and integrate concepts into their practices such as Biophilic Design. The event includes the following workshop: “How to create truly biophilic and regenerative buildings and communities”. This workshop is aimed at architects, engineers, developers and product manufacturers interested in innovative and transformative solutions, providing insights from leaders in the green building community through real-world examples while providing tools and techniques that can be applied in the local French context.

Spaces are limited to 60 for this training opportunity. The workshop will be animated in English with possible interactions in French thanks to the translation of Estelle Cruz and Louise Hamot.

Dans le cadre de notre série d’ateliers sur le Living Building Challenge, Living Future Europe propose des ateliers pour permettre aux participants d’approfondir leurs compétences en conception régénérative et d’intégrer ces concepts dans leurs pratiques comme la conception biophilique. Cet événement correspond au workshop suivant: “Comment créer des bâtiments et communautés régénérateurs”. Cet atelier s’adresse aux architectes, ingénieurs, développeurs et fabricants de produits intéressés par des solutions innovatrices et transformatrices, offrant une réflexion menée par des leaders de la communauté de la construction écologique anglo-saxonne à travers des exemples concrets tout en fournissant des outils et techniques qui peuvent être appliqués dans le contexte français local.

Les places sont limitées à 60 personnes pour cette occasion. L’atelier sera animé en anglais avec des interactions possibles en français grâce aux traduction de Estelle Cruz et Louise Hamot.
