Informing Sustainable Architecture

May 18, 2018 @ 08:30 - 17:30

Finalizing a 3 year project funded by the Nordic Built Foundation the project partners would like to invite architects, engineers and others from the building industry to an introduction to the tools and processes developed or implemented during the project.

In the morning there are two parallel workshops: Integrated dynamic digital tools  + social sustainability & Built Environment.

In the afternoon there is a seminar where the architectural offices present and discuss their view on new design processes.


Morning programme

 8.30-12: Integrated Dynamic Digital Tools
Instructors: Kristoffer Negendahl (DTU/BIG Engineering) and DTU PhD students.
You will have a chance to work with integrated dynamic tools. On the basis of Revit or Rhino models indoor climate/energy/LCA/ structural performance is added. The potential is that it is possible to see the consequences of a design decisions during the process.
Learning objectives: to have a basic knowledge of integrated dynamic tools and how it can inform your own design processes.
Software is installed at DTU computers (building 116), where the workshop takes place.
Price: 600 dkk (covers materials, honorarium to instructors, bustransport from and to BLOX and refreshments).
May 18, 8.30 am-12: Social Sustainability & the built environment.
Instructors: Henriette Ejstrup (KADK); White Arkitekter, Tegnestuen Vandkunsten, Sofie Kirt Strandbygaard (DTU), Liane Thuvander and Paula Feminias (Chalmers).
Of the three areas of sustainability defined by Brundtland (Social, Economic, and Environmental sustainability) it is social sustainability that is hardest to quantify and systematize. This also makes it hard to develop digital tools that can facilitate this. However, this does not mean that it is impossible.
This workshop will take place in a bus (pick-up at 8.30 at BLOX). From here the workshop goes to different urban districts in Copenhagen, where participants will have an opportunity to try the methods they were introduced to by the instructors during the drive.
Learning objectives: to know the principles of state-of-the-art work with social sustainability in the built environment. To know what SAVE, POE, CPTED is and how it can inform your own work.
Price: 600 dkk (covers materials, honorarium to instructors, bustransport from and to BLOX and refreshments).
Afternoon programme

In the afternoon there is free public seminar (no-show-fee) in the newly opened BLOX, where the architectural office will present their view on digital tools in design processes.
The seminar is free of charge and there is a maximum of 70 places and a no-show-fee of 500dkk.
Evening: Reception presenting book on new design processes: Informing Sustainable Architecture.


Please note thatbus transportation from BLOX is included in the ticket, as the workshops are being held at DTU.
