kataraAt PLEA 2017, the 33nd International Conference on Passive and Low Energy Architecture, PAT. presented a paper on the relationship between aesthetic and design. From Pioneering Steel Houses to Zero Energy Buildings is an evolutionary tale about the developement of the peculiar typolgy of steel frame houses, and how today’s knowledge of materials, energy conservation and building dynamics can produce high performance buildings that greatly improves on yesterday’s standards.

Life-cycle design for sustainable architecture

  • By patdesign

techneSustainable life cycle tools for buildings design and construction help to achieve successfully integrated architecture. The research here presented proposes a new point of view of the “time-cost-quality triangle” of Project Management, by introducing three further aspects: environment, society and aesthetics.

Integrazione tra LCA e LCC

progsost27Sviluppo di un modello di valutazione economico-ambientale
L’obiettivo della ricerca è quello di sviluppare una metodologia che consenta al progettista di confrontare la performance complessiva di vari sistemi di involucro edilizio al fine di effettuare una scelta consapevole, basata su dati scientificamente misurabili.
La definizione di un fattore di efficienza economico-ambientale, da applicare alla fase di progetto preliminare, vuole essere un passo verso l’integrazione tra i due strumenti di analisi, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) e Life Cycle Costing (LCC), nella valutazione di progetti edilizi, a oggi contraddistinti da percorsi separati e paralleli.

2 Projects for UIA

imagePAT. and Camillo Boano. Foreword by Tomà Berlanda. Trauben Edizioni, Torino, 2008-ITA/ENG
“…a result of a disciplinary synthesis process inside the office. Be it a module for emergency living in post-disaster conditions, or a temporary infopoint, the quality of the project positively reassures on the production of an architecture which is never ephemeral. The capacity of solving by themselves themes which are usually left to specific external competences enables the five architects to act at their best in coordinating the different phases and sectors of the building industry, in support of a tectonic culture which they are able to elevate to the rank of poetics of construction. And for this reason, in our contemporary times where ever more often hollow images dominate, their schemes are capable of transmitting the dignity of making architecture.” From the foreword by Tomà Berlanda
