INVITATION High Comfort – Low Impact: Climate Responsive Design for Buildings and Cities in Consultancy and Academic Research 16.11.2016 um 20:00 Uhr im Großen Hörsaal Vortragende: Prof. Stefan Holst, TRANSSOLAR Munich, LFUI Guest Professor, Innsbruck und Prof. Thomas Auer, TRANSSOLAR Stuttgart, TUM, Chair for Building Technology and Climate Responsive Design, Munich Climate responsive design means minimizing the negative impact of the exterior environment while taking advantage of potential natural energy sources. An energy efficient building does not have to be uncomfortable — in fact, they are often described by their occupants as more comfortable than conventional buildings. By creatively incorporating local resources as sun, outside air and earth into building systems a natural and healthy interior climate can be achieved. Enhancing the presence of daylight in a room not only minimizes energy expended on artificial lighting, it can also dramatically improve one´s architectural experience and provide a more pleasant working and living environment. Employing adaptive comfort with natural ventilation and radiant cooling eliminates the undesirable effects associated with traditional air conditioning. The principles of climate responsive design may be successfully applied to practically any city in any environment in the world. The application of climate responsive design principles in consulting […]

CITIES THEN AND NOW IN INDIA

Technikerstrasse 21, Innsbruck, Innsbruck

CITIES THEN AND NOW IN INDIA - we divide we fall India is one of world's oldest civilisation. Our cities are changing drastically over a period of time, shifting towards fortified communities. Historically, more than 4500 years ago, Indus Valley civilisation, mohenjo daro and Harappa cities architecture showcased how greatly these cities were egalitarian or in other words how urban planning conflated towards egalitarian society. And now with the emergence of gated communities people prefer being insular, afraid and skeptical of neighbours or neighbourhood and leading to clear social stratification. Previously our cities were fortified to protect us against attacks but now it strives to shelter parochials and commercial interests of builders in the pretext of security and privacy. Question need to be asked not just in India but around the world. Why walled, gated, fortified communities? Is it not discrimination and inequality? Is this democracy? It's not too late, time to think, be together and build egalitarian societies.
