It is a local and regional capacity building program for energy and climate. The aim of the program is to help public actors achieve national energy and climate impact reduction targets.
The center of the project will be the microclimate and its impact on construction world.
I am involved as independent researcher and developer expert of microclimate simulations for AEC industry.
The Summer School is organised by the Climate-KIC and its partner ASTER, the University of
Bologna, the Municipality of Bologna and Urban Centre Bologna.
It was a two-week intensive programme revolved around the challenge of adaptation towards climate change that urban communities face. Revolving around the strategic challenge to increase the capacity of society, cities and infrastructure to be able to adapt to climate change, the Bologna region with its built and natural environment served as an example to assess the issues.
The project involves the conversion of an old school into a retirement home at Bonefro, a small city in Molise.
This design is based on "in between" concept, the corridors become new space where spend time together, a sort of public road that connect each room ("flat").
The case study which is analyzed in the thesis is the residential neighborhood called Pilastro. It was built between 1962 and 1985 in Bologna, Italy and is located in the North – East of the city, inside the San Donato district. The thesis consists of series of detailed analysis carried out, in order to obtain design solutions based on the issues encountered in the oldest part of the neighbourhood, called “Primo Impianto”. The most critical issues analysed throughout this research are:
This design is composed by white cubes of the same size that they are almost anonymous outside but full of complexity inside. Every cube is a function of this complex organism.
White cubes are connected by a transparent big corridor like it is a road in a small village.
It is inspired by architectures of japanese architects like Tadao Ando and Sou Fujimoto.
