It’s all about performances.

The Future Envelope 12
& FACEcamp Results Seminar

Conference on Building Envelopes
20-21 May 2019, NOI Techpark, Bolzano (Italy)

It’s all about performances.

New design tool and approaches, and innovative construction methods are enabling architects and engineers to conceive and develop increasingly complex and daring building envelopes. This process is rapidly reshaping our built environment, and transforming the concept of building envelope itself, which is no longer a passive and static element that only separates the indoor environment from the outdoor world. In this fast changing context, one of the major issues is the evaluation of the performances of such complex façade systems. The different functions of a complex building envelope have their respective requirements, and hence designers have to analyze and ensure the performances of overall faced system.

The aim of “Facade performances” is therefore to provide insights into the performances of these innovative building envelopes considering on four thematic areas, namely architecture, energy, comfort, and economics and management. Hence, the focus will be on the shape of the new envelopes, on their implications on the overall building energy consumption, on the comfort experienced by the occupants of these buildings, and on the financial performances and the new business models that are part of these innovative solutions. For each topic, three leading experts will be invited from research and academia, design firms, and construction companies respectively to share a wide range of experiences, ideas, and visions.

The conference organization is led by IDM South Tyrol & EURAC Research, supported by Free University of Bolzano, University of Innsbruck, and Politecnico of Milano as scientific partners, and in cooperation with the European Façade Network (EFN). This event is funded by the ITA-AUT Interreg project FACEcamp being the project final conference.

Collaboration + abundance at #LF19.

[If there is collaboration, there is also abundance].

Join me at Living Future 19 in Seattle for another incredible #LF unconference 🙂

Living Future is all about cross-industry collaboration. We believe regenerative design can only happen when all voices are brought to the table. If you’re interested in making a difference in your community, then there’s a place for you at Living Future.

Keynote speakers will be: Bill McKibben (350.org, Founder), Mary Robinson (Former President of Ireland, UN Special Envoy on Climate Change), Mustafa Santiago Ali (Hip Hop Caucus, Senior Vice President of Climate, Environmental Justice, & Community), Sara Sanford (GEN, Executive Director), Mark Chambers (Chief Sustainability Officer, City of New York).
Moreover, there will be a number of sessions, workshops, tours and … happy hour events. Not to forget, the launch of the new version of the Living Building Challenge standard, LBC 4.0 and the new version of JUST 2.0. This is the leading event in regenerative design you can’t miss 😉

I will have the great opportunity to present in two sessions:

The International Summit
Wednesday May 1, 2019 1:00pm – 4:00pm,
Hyatt Regency – Sol Duc Room # 708

Join participants of the Living Future Network around the globe to discuss the creation of Living Buildings, Products, and Communities outside of the US.

REthinking Sustainability Towards a Regenerative Economy: The RESTORE Project
Thursday May 2, 2019 3:45pm – 5:00pm
Hyatt Regency – Willapa Room #512
w/ Martin Brown and Emanuele Naboni
read more

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’.
This session will focus on the work that the COST RESTORE project has been achieving in Europe over the last two years to accelerate the adoption and awareness of restorative buildings. The session will review research, collaboration and projects that have emerged from this partnership of 130 organizations and institutions. The panellists will elaborate also on how the Living Building Challenge can bring restorative principles to building projects through this Action across Europe.

So, what are you waiting for? … Ready to jojn us at #LF19? Registration here. See you in Seattle 😉

Carlo Battisti is Chair of the COST Action 16114 RESTORE and European Executive Director for the International Living Future Institute.

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.

Quando: gio 7 febbraio 2019, 16:30 – 19:00 CET
Dove: NOI Techpark, Via Alessandro Volta 13, 39100 Bolzano

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 😉

Plastic model of Malaga – Edificio Múltiple de Servicios Municipales

The main focus of the Conference Week in Malaga, organized in the frame of Cost Action CA16114 RESTORE CA16114, is the Digital Implementation of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and Regenerative Sustainable Design principles in the practice of design.
