Commencing February 2020
In WG5 we are thinking about restorative and regenerative processes beyond the individual or particular (material, building, person/professional; space). We will identify scale jumping potentials for neighbourhood, city and society-wide level regenerative sustainability.
Examples of scale jumping:
Material/component → Building → Neighbourhood →> District → City
Place → Destination → Region
Individual → Profession (group) → Society
Scientific, exclusive knowledge → Professional knowledge → Popular knowledge
OBJECTIVES: To explore scale jumping potentials including analysis, solutions, and implementation.
We are working in 8 subgroups (2 main themes)
5.1a Human – human interactions in education, research and professional practice
5.1b Human – built environment interactions
5.1c Nature – built environment interactions
5.2d Nature – human – built environment triangular interactions
5.2 TOOLS, PLATFORMS AND METRICS
5.2a Digital tools and emerging technologies for supporting design (e.g. 3D printing, automatization, VR, blockchain)
5.2b Smartness (IoT, AI, smart technologies)
5.2c Assessments, rating and diagnostics
5.2d Legislation, urban/regional planning
Keywords: Building as Clusters, Buildings as nodes in Nano and Micro Grids (energy, water, transport, communications), Neighbourhoods, Smart and Eco Cities.
Activities will include: New paradigm definition + gap analysis, short-term scientific missions, training school, events, papers
Outcomes to include: Short term: State of the art + new paradigm report, short-term scientific missions, training school, events, and papers.
Long term: Produce training materials, Contribute to the “Atlas of Solutions” a catalogue of solutions that facilitate the creation of regenerative Buildings.
