Le belle scuole dell’Alto Adige.

School Buildings Tour
Quando pedagogia, architettura (e comfort) dialogano insieme.

In concomitanza con la mostra “Costruire scuole in Alto Adige”, TIS innovation park e la rete di competenze “spazio&apprendimento” in collaborazione con il Gruppo di Lavoro Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) organizzano due giornate formative dedicate agli edifici scolastici.

Obiettivo delle giornate è approfondire il tema della relazione tra pedagogia e architettura, mostrando come i concetti pedagogici possono concretizzarsi in spazi architettonici innovativi, e scoprire cosa accade quando, nel momento progettuale, pedagogia e architettura dialogano insieme e studiano spazi in cui l’apprendimento e l’insegnamento possono trovare la giusta collocazione. L’evento si compone di un primo pomeriggio presso il Forte di Fortezza, in cui saranno illustrati i concetti di base e condivise le esperienze; seguirà la visita alla mostra “Costruire scuole in Alto Adige” allestita presso il Forte.

Zona Comfort.

2015_09_30-01 Comfort zoneUscirne, per trovarlo.

Si sente spesso l’espressione “Uscire dalla zona di comfort” per riuscire ad innovare. La zona di comfort è quello stato nel quale una persona agisce in una quiete neutra, senza ansia e senza rischio, magari tranquillizzata da rassicuranti consuetudini, e da un consolidato modo di pensare. Ma se si vuole innovare è opportuno uscire dal proprio guscio e cambiare la prospettiva, ragionare in modo non convenzionale, insomma “think outside the box” (per utilizzare un’altra espressione analoga). E ciò vale – il gioco di parole è scontato – anche per trovare nuove soluzioni … per il comfort all’interno degli spazi in cui viviamo.

In Europa si trascorre mediamente circa il 90% della propria giornata in ambienti interni: di conseguenza la qualità di tali ambienti ha un’influenza significativa sul benessere, sulla produttività e sulla qualità della vita.

Seattle Public Library (OMA + LMN) 04.04.2015

Traffico e smog sono tra le cause principali dell’inquinamento esterno, cosi come il fumo e le sostanze chimiche possono esserlo per quello interno. Oltre alle sostanze contaminanti, ci sono altri aspetti che influiscono direttamente sulla qualità dell’ambiente interno (Indoor Environmental Quality) e sono intrinsecamente connessi con il concetto di comfort: l’ingresso di luce naturale, la possibilità di vedere verso l’esterno, il microclima inteso come temperatura, umidità, velocità, composizione dell’aria interna e possibilità di regolazione, l’acustica, ecc.

Ci sono diverse strategie per affrontare la tematica IEQ, che verranno presentate in questo convegno. Più in generale, è necessario un approccio integrato e multidisciplinare, che coinvolga progettisti architettonici, impiantistici, committente, impresa di costruzioni, occupanti, lungo tutto il processo che porta dall’ideazione, al cantiere, alla consegna, gestione e monitoraggio dell’edificio.

2015_09_30-02 Zona ComfortData l’importanza del tema, il Cluster Edilizia del TIS innovation park ha promosso la costituzione del Gruppo di Lavoro Indoor Environmental Quality – IEQ, che coinvolge enti di ricerca e certificazione del territorio, esperti dell’amministrazione pubblica, imprese e professionisti. Il convegno Zona Comfort sarà anche l’occasione per presentare e distribuire (copia gratuita a tutti i partecipanti) il libretto “Linee Guida sul Comfort” primo risultato del lavoro del gruppo.

Ecco il programma e la “line-up” di relatori di Zona Comfort:

Die Komfortzone

In Europa verbringen Menschen im Durchschnitt etwa 90% ihrer Zeit in Innenräumen. Die Qualität dieser Umgebung hat deshalb einen wesentlichen Einfluss auf das Wohlbefinden, die Produktivität und die Lebensqualität.

Verkehr und Smog gehören zu den Hauptursachen von Außenluftverschmutzung, während Rauch und Chemikalien die Innenluft beeinflussen. Neben Verunreinigungen gibt es noch andere Aspekte, die sich unmittelbar auf die Qualität des Innenraumklimas (Indoor Environmental Quality) auswirken und deshalb untrennbar mit dem Komfort verbunden sind: der Eintritt von natürlichem Licht, die Möglichkeit, nach außen zu sehen und das Mikroklima, nämlich die Temperatur, Luftfeuchte, -geschwindigkeit und -zusammensetzung und interne Regulationsmöglichkeiten, die Akustik usw.

Seattle Public Library (OMA + LMN) 04.04.2015

Es gibt unterschiedliche Herangehensweisen an das Thema IEQ, welche in diesem Workshop vorgestellt werden. Ein integrierter und multidisziplinärer Ansatz wird gebraucht, welcher architektonische Planer, Anlagenbauer, Auftraggeber, Bauunternehmen und Bewohner während des gesamten Prozesses miteinbezieht, welcher von der ersten Idee über die Baustelle bis zur Übergabe, Verwaltung und Überwachung des Gebäudes führt.

2015_09_30-03 KomfortzoneIn Anbetracht der Wichtigkeit des Themas hat der Cluster Bau des TIS innovation park die Arbeitsgruppe IEQ gegründet, in welcher lokale Forschungs- und Zertifizierungseinrichtungen, Experten der öffentlichen Verwaltung, Unternehmen und Fachleute zusammentreffen. Die Tagung “Die Komfortzone” ist eine Gelegenheit, die Broschüre „Leitlinien für Komfort” zu präsentieren und zu verteilen (kostenlose Kopie an alle Teilnehmer), welche das erste Ergebnis der Arbeitsgruppe ist.

Peter Pan is Green!

– 3 days at the Green Apple Day of Service with Macro Design Studio in Cavareno, Italy,  September 26th.

2015_09_23-02 GADoSAfter the event last September 2014 in Arco, also this year Macro Design Studio is providing voluntarily its services for the Green Apple Day, organized by the Center for Green Schools of USGBC. There will be more than 500 events this year, all over the world. The “Peter Pan is Green” project, that will take place at the kindergarten “Peter Pan” in Cavareno, is the only registered event in Italy (one of the two in Europe) under this program. Macro Design Studio is the sustainability partner of the Municipality of Cavareno, this so nice 1,000 inhabitants village in Non Valley, Trentino (Italy) and it is working with local teachers and administrators to highlight how sustainability could find its fertile soil in the classrooms.

The “Peter Pan” kindergarten will feature on Saturday 26th, September different activities related to the “Educate”, “Take It Outside” and “Waste Not” event topics created by the Center for Green Schools. This is the agenda for the day.

2015_09_23-01 Peter Pan09:00 – 09:20  Presentation of the Green Apple Day

09:20 – 10:40   Ancient seeds (for children)

09:30 – 10:10    Green tour (I)

10:40 – 12:00    Re-place (for children)

11:00 – 11:40      Green tour (II)

12:00 – 12:30     Organic drinks


Green tour
(“Educate”)
Guided tour with the designers, to explore the green technical features of the school. Target group: school parents, architects and engineers, public administrators, teachers. The school features several green performances: waste is 100 % differentiated, rainwater is harvested for garden irrigation and toilet flushing, heating system and domestic hot water for the building are guaranteed by the municipal biomass district heating, just to mention a few. More over the school was built through the redevelopment of two existent historic buildings with a bio-compatible timber structure saving embodied energy and CO2 emissions.

Ancient seeds (“Take It Outside”)
Educational game for pupils, in the outside garden. Pupils are taught to pick up autochthone seeds (e.g. beans) growing locally from more than forty years. Seeds are taken from local plants and not purchased from other markets. There are also some voluntaries conserving during the years seeds picked up by the children. The aim is to preserve local species and biodiversity. To this extent the school has become “guardian of ancient seeds” (beans, calendula, nasturtium, wheat, cornflower, etc.).

Re-place (“Waste Not”)
Educational game for pupils. Pupils are taught and encouraged to create new toys using waste materials. More than recycling, we can define it upcycling because new objects have a greater value than previous poor materials where they come from. Materials are typically: wood, plastic, paper, textiles. Also broken toys can be used to assembly new toys.

At the end of the morning, before lunch, drinks and beverages will be provided to the attendees, prepared using local organic products.

Participation is free, but registration is required at this link.

The Greenest School on Earth.

Is your school the greenest on Earth? The Greenest School on Earth recognition is an annual announcement made by the Center for Green Schools, highlighting a K-12 school that exemplifies how sustainability can be integrally woven into the infrastructure, culture and curriculum of a school. The Center for Green Schools defines a green school as one that achieves zero environmental impact (including energy, water, waste and carbon), a positive impact on occupant health and performance, and 100% environmentally literate graduates. These are encompassed in three pillars—environmental impact, human health and ecoliteracy.

Peter Pan” kindergarten in Cavareno (Trento, Italy) has just applied – thanks to Macro Design Studio – 2014 call for the Greenest School. Cavareno is a small (1,000 inhabitants) village located 1,000 meters high in Non Valley (Trentino, Italy) a wide green valley covered with meadows, woods and apple trees. Even a small village like this one can do a lot in terms of sustainability explained and experienced in school, from the very early children age. The first building for the kindergarten was built in 1913 and then enlarged forty years later. After a complete requalification of the complex in 2009, now “Peter Pan” school is located in a new timber building with a lot of natural light and beautiful colours. Do you want to take a trip in this school …? Keep on reading 🙂

Environmental impact

Waste is 100 % differentiated and then transferred to CRM Centro Raccolta Materiali (waste materials collection center of Cavareno, shared with other municipalities), that allows to recycle or dispose locally, according to the current regulations, 32 different categories of waste. In addition, a multilevel education, constantly promoted and supported by the municipality, has contributed to the growth of the attention to waste materials selection and reuse. Moreover, the school uses cloth towels and napkins.

Rainwater is harvested for garden irrigation and toilet flushing. Heating system and domestic hot water for the building are guaranteed by the municipal biomass district heating, installed in 2012 and serving all the village’s public buildings. During 2013/2014 school season, total annual consumption was approximately 111,000 kWh, for a cost of about € 8,900 (net of tax reductions). The energy performance index, including domestic hot water, which is largely produced by solar panels, is about 80 Kwh/sqm per year.

The school was built through the redevelopment of two existing historic buildings (the kinder garden and the rectory) with a bio-compatible timber structure (average transmittance 0.20 W/sqmK). These two aspects (redevelopment, timber) have saved embodied energy and CO2 emissions. Other features: bioclimatic design, green roof, solar greenhouses, use of natural materials and finishes, both inside and outside, Km0 cooking, with purchase of organic products for the canteen.

Human Health and Performance

??????????Average children absence is between 8 and 8.3%, including those children who do not attend for a few months, because they go and visit their relatives in their home countries (Romania, Albania, Morocco, etc.). Average teachers’ absence is not significant, because much related to operations or medical situations that have nothing to do with their profession.

Children can greet their parents seeing them from the window, even while inside the classroom and under the supervision of the teacher. Children can easily find sheltered and reserved places, but always under the teacher’s gaze ..

The wide open spaces, e.g. the dining room, with a large fresh air supply “smell” never smell musty; indeed, sometimes they smell of freshly baked bread.

Ecoliteracy

??????????Environmental education is emphasized in this school through several activities.

School: guardian of ancient seeds, to preserve local biodiversity; for the home production, in order to reduce carried products (Participation in the competition “For a handful of seeds“). Waste recycling together with children (paper, cardboard, plastic, metal, wood), and with adults (all).

High use of paper and waste reuse for new products; prevailing use of natural or recyclable products for decorations (paper, wool, clay, wood). Constant presence in the surrounding land, at least twice a week to get to know, appreciate and learn how to “manage” it, in every season. When it’s possible in winter even with cross-country skis or snowshoes.

Implementation of specific local projects: paths that identify beautiful and characteristic elements to watch or attend; ancient trees to preserve and cure; the area between heaven and earth, between past and present (project with FAI); movable frames and landscaping of “de Zinis” Park, the crib or the sprawled exhibitions; the realization with Pro Loco (local tourist office) of “real” postcards that show the beauty of our country.

To walk to the villages where the children come from; involvement in significant moments of the agricultural works: seeding and harvest of potatoes, radicchio …The cultivation of vegetables in the garden.

Participation to projects with MART (Museum of Modern Art) in Rovereto to bind art and recycling.

People, elderly, grandparents, typical figures of the village and of the area sometimes enter the school (or we meet them outside) to let us know works, activities, experiences of today or of the past.

Moreover, school and municipality are involved in the network of the Alta Val di Non – Futuro sostenibile association, founded in 2009 to promote an aware and responsible management of the whole territory of the valley, with the mission to protect the landscape. Their challenge is focused in particular on the protection of the incomparable and fascinating meadows. It is a long range battle which also involves the massive use in the past of herbicides and fungicides without adequate regulations to protect citizens.
