REGENERATION 2017. The Conference.

REGENERATION 2017. The Conference.
Riva del Garda, Italy | Rocca di Riva del Garda.
Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CEST)

It’s time to imagine a living future and a world of living buildings. The Living Building Challenge is a philosophy, certification and advocacy tool for projects to move beyond merely being less bad and to become truly regenerative. The Challenge defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to rapidly diminish the gap between current limits and the end-game positive solutions we seek.

clockwise: Amanda Sturgeon, Martin Brown, Emanuele Naboni, Emmanuel Pauwels

The conference is connected to REGENERATION, the 64 hours European competition organized by Macro Design Studio and Carlo Battisti together with the International Living Future Institute and also represents the annual main event of the Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy, a community-based group sharing knowledge and creating the local conditions that support development of Living Buildings, Sites and Communities.

REGISTRATION

Il wellbeing che vorrei.

Appunti per un comfort sostenibile.

Di ritorno da un weekend in un wellness hotel, la domanda principale che mi sono fatto è “Ma, qual è il wellness che vorrei?”. Perché, diciamolo, l’esperienza mi ha lasciato qualche perplessità e mi spinge a tornare ancora una volta sul tema comfort e sostenibilità, ovvero “Un comfort sostenibile ?” Partiamo dagli hotel, che rappresentano proprio un ambito di riferimento per il tema.

2017_03_03-01-oberoi-udaivilas

Oberoi Udaivilas in Udaipur, Rajasthan (India)

Primo punto. Comfort = lusso? Come in questo splendido hotel indiano? Comfort = abbondanza? Ovvero una lista infinita di possibilità e servizi che è impossibile sfruttare tutti, a meno che non si soggiorni nell’albergo per un mese? Perché se tenti di fare tutto in un weekend (e questo è il tempo a disposizione che mi è capitato di avere) ti ricoverano in preda ad una crisi di nervi. La novità degli ultimi anni è la ¾ pensione, che è più di mezza pensione e meno di una pensione completa. Ovvero, torni presto dalla sciata (ma perché dovresti farlo?) e trovi un buffet per uno “spuntino”, magari alle due o alle tre del pomeriggio, che vi assicuro alla fine è come un pranzo. E all’orizzonte incombe la cena, di almeno 5 portate. Nel mezzo, bisogna affrettarsi a frequentare l’area wellness, sperando che vapori e acqua calda ti brucino qualche caloria (difficile).

2017_03_03-13-wellbeing

Troppi servizi, troppa offerta … riuscirò a far tutto in un weekend??

2017_03_03-02-wall-e

WALL•E – Pixar Animation Studios & Walt Disney Pictures (2008)

Insomma lo scenario apocalittico di una società viziata e sedentaria alla “Wall-e” è dietro l’angolo. Ma tutti i suddetti comfort alla fine vengono dimenticati velocemente, se l’impianto di ventilazione dell’albergo è progettato o realizzato male, e nella tua mansarda arriva sin dal primo mattino l’odore di aglio. Allora, prima curare la corretta ventilazione dell’edificio e poi pensare ai succhi di frutta tropicali nell’area piscina.

2017_03_03-04-cappa-cucina

In definitiva, il troppo finisce per darmi fastidio e ripenso al “Less is more” di Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Ed è questa ad esempio la strategia intrapresa dalla catena canadese Alt Hotels, che con l’ossimoro “Affordable luxury” caratterizzano la loro offerta con l’eliminazione di tutto ciò che non è davvero necessario, pur mantenendo un adeguato livello di comfort.

2017_03_03-03-alt-hotel

2017_03_03-05-termostati

E poi c’è la questione dei “termostati truccati”. Sì, avete capito bene. Una recente indagine documentata sul Wall Street Journal del 25.01.2017 ha scoperto che in un numero rilevante di hotel i termostati sono bloccati e non consentono la regolazione individuale della temperatura nella camera. Cioè, la rotella del termostato gira, ma in realtà la temperatura della stanza è fissata e regolata centralmente dall’hotel. E così sono spuntati in rete addirittura dei tutorial che spiegano come rimuovere il blocco dell’apparecchio e riprendere il comando delle operazioni. Insomma … “Occupy thermostats”.

2017_03_03-06-walden

Walden Pond, Concord (MA, USA)

Secondo punto. E se tutto questo approccio bulimico al comfort fosse sbagliato? Se avesse ragione Henry David Thoreau (il più sottovalutato dei filosofi americani dell’800)? Se fosse comfort = frugalità?Walden, ovvero Vita nei boschi” è il resoconto dell’avventura dell’autore, che dedicò oltre due anni della propria vita, nell’estate del 1847, a cercare un rapporto intimo con la natura e insieme a ritrovare se stesso in una società che non rappresentava ai suoi occhi i veri valori da seguire, ma solo l’utile mercantile. Il suo fu un esperimento avente per obiettivo quello di cercare la conciliazione tra artista e il mondo naturale grazie all’ottimismo scaturito dal considerare l’uomo come artefice del proprio destino e come essere dipendente da sensazioni ed emozioni. Il libro fu scritto quasi interamente durante il soggiorno di Thoreau in una capanna, costruita in gran parte da solo, sulle sponde del lago Walden che si trova vicino alla cittadina di Concord in Massachusetts [Wikipedia].

Thoreau è sicuramente un riferimento per l’approccio biofilico. Biophilia = ipotesi scientifica proposta nel 1984 da Edward O. Wilson che rileva empiricamente nell’essere umano la “tendenza innata a concentrare il proprio interesse sulla vita e sui processi vitali”. Si può ottenere un comfort sostenibile seguendo questi principi e ci sono ormai molti studi che dimostrano i benefici tangibili sulla salute della persona e sulla riduzione dei costi operativi legati a una progettazione virtuosa degli spazi abitati. Seguendo ad esempio il protocollo (filosofia e sistema di certificazione allo stesso tempo) Living Building Challenge creato e mantenuto dall’International Living Future Institute (ILFI).

2017_03_03-07-biophilia

Terzo punto. Viviamo il 90% della nostra vita all’interno di edifici. E’ una notizia tanto assodata quanto banale, ma poiché lo sappiamo, perché non puntiamo a garantire una qualità del vivere all’interno di questi spazi (Indoor Environmental Quality)? E’ la strategia dell’International WELL Building Institute. La riflessione di partenza è semplice: in un’organizzazione (immaginiamo un edificio per uffici) la stragrande maggioranza dei costi operativi riguarda i costi del personale. Circa il 90%, a fronte di un 1% per l’energia. Negli ultimi anni ci siamo battuti per l’efficienza energetica e questo è un bene, perché l’efficienza energetica è amica dell’ambiente. Ma ci siamo dimenticati delle persone. Bene, con il protocollo WELL rimettiamo al centro la persona. Un progetto certificato WELL ha il potenziale di aggiungere un valore misurabile per la salute, il benessere e la felicità degli occupanti dell’edificio. Detto in altri termini, se le persone vivono e lavorano all’interno di un ambiente salubre e confortevole, ne beneficiano umore, salute e quindi produttività. È migliora il margine di profitto. Si tratta di un nuovo ROI (Return on Investment) a beneficio del capitale investito dal conduttore e dal proprietario dell’immobile.

2017_03_03-09-well 2017_03_03-12-well

Quarto punto. Tutto quanto sopra descritto è un driver micidiale per l’innovazione. Solo per quanto riguarda la misurazione e il mantenimento della qualità dell’aria interna di un ambiente stanno spuntando numerose soluzioni interessanti, come ad esempio il purificatore molecolare di aria interna, sviluppato dalla startup di San Francisco Molekule.

Per questo stiamo stimolando in IDM Südtirol Alto Adige la discussione e lo sviluppo di nuove idee proprio attraverso un Gruppo di Lavoro trasversale dedicato alla tematica del comfort e dell’Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ).

2017_03_03-10-gl-ieq
Quinto punto
. Abbiamo detto di quanto contano gli edifici, perché consumano risorse e con la propria efficienza energetica possono ridurre l’impatto sull’ambiente, e perché la qualità (o la mancanza di qualità) degli ambienti interni influenza direttamente la qualità della vita e il comfort delle persone. Quanto abbiamo detto per gli edifici può essere “scalato” a livello di quartieri, comunità, città intere. Gli “edifici viventi” (i Living Building di ILFI) possono trasformarsi in Living Communities. Possiamo riportare i principi virtuosi (un edificio autonomo, che non impatta sull’ambiente, che produce ciò che consuma, che ha un effetto positivo sulle persone) a una dimensione urbana più ampia. Anche questo (o proprio questo) è wellbeing.

2017_03_03-11-lcc

Riepilogando, ecco il mio decalogo per la discussione:

  1. Definire il wellness (lusso vs. frugalità, mass customization?)
  2. Less is more
  3. Dalla sostenibilità ambientale-energetica a quella delle persone
  4. Misurare e certificare le prestazioni e il wellbeing (la persona nell’edificio)
  5. Monitorare il comportamento e dialogare con gli occupanti
  6. Wellbeing come leva economica
  7. Wellness come driver per soluzioni innovative
  8. Declinare il wellbeing per tipologie di edifici (hotel, uffici, scuole, ospedali, ecc.)
  9. Recuperare il rapporto con la natura (Biofilia, Living Buildings)
  10. Saltare di scala: dai Living Buildings alle Living Communities

Siete pronti per un manifesto del comfort sostenibile, per un wellbeing a misura di uomo e di ambiente? 🙂

“Casa SN”. At Arco the first LBC registered project in Italy

Arco opens the way for the “Living Buildings”.

Living Building Challenge2016_05_30-01 LBC (LBC), created in 2006 by the International Living Future Institute (Seattle, WA), is a philosophy, an advocacy tool and a certification program. The LBC is the most advanced sustainability protocol for buildings and communities. A year has passed since the establishment of the Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy (the group of volunteers based at Progetto Manifattura in Rovereto, committed in the implementation of the LBC principles in Italy) and the second edition of REGENERATION (the first European design contest for young architects and engineers entirely based on LBC) has just ended. The “cultural” investment promoted by Macro Design Studio, the proactive consulting company of Rovereto working on the sustainability of the built environment, begins to bear fruits.

Casa SN” will be built in Arco and it is the first Italian project pursuing the Living Building Challenge certification. There are more than 330 LBC registered or certified projects in the world so far (the certification program was launched eight years ago) and the number is growing, not only in the US but also in Europe, in different climate zones and with different typologies (schools, offices, communities, research centers, dwellings). “Casa SN” will demonstrate that it is possible to create a building without environmental impact. It is a radical change: instead of designing buildings that consume a bit less than the traditional ones, we will create buildings that are capable of creating a positive impact on the environment.

2016_05_30-04 Casa SNThe design process of Casa SN is in full swing, the beginning of the construction phase is scheduled for this summer. They expect to complete the project sometime during 2017. One of the features that radically differentiate Living Building Challenge from other certification programs the final certificate may be issued only after twelve months of operations, in which the consumption will be periodically measured. The building will prove to be completely self-sufficient in terms of energy through the use of renewable sources. The Living Building Challenge already anticipates what before long will become the new standard for European construction.

REGENERATION rocks!

A “Rocky Station” for REGENERATION

Good also the second one, one might say, after the conclusion of REGENERATION 2016 which repeats, after one year, the success of the European design competition by Macro Design Studio in collaboration with the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), that promotes the Living Building philosophy, the most rigorous standard in the world for sustainability of the built environment. REGENERATION is not just a design contest, it is a multi-disciplinary experience, a real evolutionary path bringing through the technical challenge of Living Building Challenge the best young architects and engineers from all over Europe to face the future of our communities, by combining with a systemic approach to the problems a creative freedom with a robust technical competence.

2016_04_21-02 team blueThe competition among the projects of the three international teams was so heated, that the international jury composed of Amanda Sturgeon, chairwoman of ILFI, Michele Stramandinoli, of Inarcassa Foundation and Giulia Peretti of Werner Sobek Green Technologies encountered difficulties in choosing the winner. So, at the end of the 64 hours workshop, it was the “Rocky Mountain” project of the YELLOW team (composed by Jernej Markelj, architect of Ljubljana, Cinzia Polesini, architect of Rome, Zuzana Prochazkova, engineer from Bratislava, Marco Scarlini, engineer from Modena and Cecilia Tosto, architect of Catania) to take home the € 3,000 prize offered also this year by the Italian Foundation of freelance Architects and Engineers.

2016_04_21-06 Rocky StationThe renovation project of the decayed bus station building in Arco presented by the yellow team combines highly sustainable performances (LBC design requires a building environmental impact equal to zero) with an interesting redevelopment of the surrounding area (another need expressed by the Municipality of this Alto Garda city). Why ‘Rocky’? Because one of the strong ideas of the winning project is the construction of a climbing wall adjacent to the building (a pastime while waiting the coach?), designed to ideally connect the local transport hub with the beautiful cliffs and the sporty vocation of Arco.

2016_04_21-03 Amanda SturgeonThe award ceremony of Saturday, April 16 afternoon was the final event of the three days in Central Fies dedicated to a regenerative approach, beyond a mere sustainability for buildings and communities. Principles that have been presented and discussed in the event of the morning, REGENERATION. The Conference, where Amanda Sturgeon described how ILFI is currently focusing on the transparency of manufacturing companies (Declare is de facto an ingredient label for construction products, which prefigures an epochal revolution) and how to switch from building to ‘living communities’ certification . Martin Brown, a prominent UK figure of sustainability, then told us about the growth of the first project in UK that will achieve the LBC certification. Emanuele Naboni, Italian professor at KADK, Faculty of Architecture of Copenhagen, led some examples of architectural solutions designed for extreme environments (from the Amazon to the Arctic). In closing, the testimony of the winning team of REGENERATION 2015, with the “Proud to be zero” project, regarding the redevelopment of the city library building in Dro.

2016_04_21-05 Stazione ArcoAlso this REGENERATION edition showed that a zero impact redevelopment project of a public building is not only technically feasible, but it can start positive energies such as to stimulate the regeneration of a whole community. With the added complication this year of an intervention on a historic building bound by the local Conservation Authority, which has greatly restricted the space for participants’ manoeuvre.

To thank individually all the people, companies and institutions that have collaborated in 2016 REGENERATION would require too much time; we send a huge thanks to everyone. Without so a choral participation and commitment REGENERATION simply wouldn’t exist.

The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen’.- Frank Lloyd Wright.

The REGENERATION 2016 Conference.

A “different Saturday” … that will change your minds.
