Definition eines aktualisierten Berufsbilds des Architekten in Algerien

Mazoun, Redha (2017)

Der Beruf des Architekten ist dynamisch und entwickelt sich stetig. Das bedeutet, dass die architektonischen Dienstleistungen, gleichsam mit der technologischen Entwicklung, der Globalisierung, dem sozialen Wandel, den Kundenanforderungen und den Umweltfragen wachsen, sich diversifizieren und sich ebenso verkomplizieren. Der Architekt muss in der Lage sein, auf alle diese Herausforderungen mit ...

Untersuchungen zum denkmalverträglichen Feuchteschutz bei sommerlicher Kondensation in Kirchen

Schrimpf, Petra (2017)

Die Sommerkondensation wird als jahreszeitlich bedingtes Phänomen beschrieben, bei dem in den Frühjahrs- und Frühsommermonaten in Gebäuden mit einer hohen Wärmespeicherfähigkeit Kondensat an den Innenflächen der Umfassungsbauteile auftreten kann. Kirchen sind diesen Gebäuden zuzurechnen. Für das Auftreten von Sommerkondensation sind häufig nicht klimaangepasste Lüftungsvorgänge verantwortlich. ...

Frühchristliche Propyläen

Rose, Arnd (2017)

Beginning from the 4th Century AD, numerous great ecclesiastical complexes were constructed in the area of the late Roman Empire. Apart from the main churches, these complexes usually incorporated several other buildings either of sacred or secular purpose. The approach to these areas was in many cases emphasized by elaborated gateways. Several of these gateways are known from written sources...

The possibility of using bioenergy as a climate change mitigation measure has sparked a discussion of whether and how bioenergy production contributes to sustainable development. We undertook a systematic review of the scientific literature to illuminate this relationship and found a limited scientific basis for policymaking. Our results indicate that knowledge on the sustainable development im...

From Targets to Action

Knopf, Brigitte ; Fuss, Sabine ; Hansen, Gerrit ; Creutzig, Felix ; Minx, Jan ; Edenhofer, Ottmar (2017)

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015 ambitious targets for responding to the threat of climate change have been set: limiting global temperature increase to “well below 2 °C […] and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C”. However, calculating the CO2 budget for 1.5 °C, it becomes clear that there is nearly no room left for future emissions. Sc...

Spatial Commons – urban open spaces as a resource

Pelger, Dagmar ; Klever, Paul ; Klotz, Steffen ; Pappert, Lukas ; Schulze, Jens (2017)

Space has to be discussed once one focuses on the commons, the natural and cultural resources securing the well-being of a community. The question of availability of these resources includes asking for the place where they are accessible or where they are made accessible and thus always the question of the spatial organization of this society. This publication wants to provide a first overview ...

Sprache – Schrift – Architektur

Zhou, Hao (2017)

Die traditionelle Architektur in China hat seine einzigartigen Merkmale in Raum, Konzepte und Ornamente. Diese Merkmale sind auch in der Art und Weise des Entwurfsdenkens in der modernen Architektur in China zu sehen. Sie sind nicht nur bei Architekten beliebt, die von der modernen architektonischen Ausbildung trainiert wurden, sondern auch eine Vorliebe für normale Menschen. Es wäre herauszufi...

Catching two European birds with one renewable stone

Creutzig, Felix ; Goldschmidt, Jan Christoph ; Lehman, Paul ; Schmid, Eva ; Blücher, Felix von ; Breyer, Christian ; Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Jakob, Michael ; Knopf, Brigitte ; Lohrey, Steffen ; Susca, Tiziana ; Wiegandt, Konstantin (2014)

The threat of climate change and other risks for ecosystems and human health require a transition of the energy system from fossil fuels towards renewable energies and higher efficiency. The European geographical periphery, and specifically Southern Europe, has considerable potential for renewable energies. At the same time it is also stricken by high levels of public debt and unemployment, and...

Stakeholder involvement in sustainability science

Mielke, Jahel ; Vermaßen, Hannah ; Ellenbeck, Saskia ; Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Jaeger, Carlo (2016)

Discussions about the opening of science to society have led to several developments: New fields of sustainability science and transformative research have emerged and the "megatrend" of stakeholder participation has reached the academic world and thus research processes. This challenges the way science is conducted and the tools, methods and theories perceived appropriate. Although researchers...

Participatory design in transit-oriented development uncovers social benefits

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Transit-oriented development (TOD) tackles multiple challenges simultaneously and fosters sustainable urban development. Low-carbon intensity transport modes help mitigating climate change, enhance the quality of local ecosystems and offer monetary savings. While less well studied, TOD also positively affects citizen’s social interactions. The social sustainability that can be drawn from TOD in...

How participatory planning processes for transit-oriented development contribute to social sustainability

Fernandez Milan, Blanca (2015)

Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a relatively recent neighbourhood development concept associated with the three dimensions of urban sustainability (environmental, economic and social). Traditionally, TOD has been associated with environmental and economic benefits. Recent research has shown evidence of positive social outcomes related to the spatial characteristics of TOD areas. But the s...

A systematic framework of location value taxes reveals dismal policy design in most European countries

Milan Fernandez, Blanca ; Kapfer, David ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Location values have long been recognized as an attractive instrument to raise municipal revenues. First, they increase fiscal efficiency and equability compared to traditional property taxes. Second, they can be used to enhance sustainable urban planning. The question of how to design a location value tax has long been discussed in various strands of literature, but there are few efforts to cr...

Municipal policies accelerated urban sprawl and public debts in Spain

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Urban form and resource consumption co-evolve dynamically with public finances. While in compact urban settlements public service is provided more efficiently, and in larger amounts per surface area, sprawled developments often translate into larger marginal infrastructure investments, and into higher rates of consumption of resources per capita: land, raw materials, and transport fuels. Yet th...

Water security in an urbanized world

Fernandez Milan, Blanca (2016)

Ensure access to water and sanitation for all is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recently recognized at the international community. The combination of natural constraints, population forecasts and climate change threat this and other SDGs closely related. In cities, inequalities in water security become more explicit as complexity in water management given by institutional and ...

Reducing urban heat wave risk in the 21st century

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2015-09-05)

Global warming increases the frequency, intensity and duration of heat waves, particularly endangering urban populations. However, the health risks of heat waves are distributed unequally between people because of intrinsic person-specific characteristics and extrinsic factors. The confluence of forecasted urbanisation and projected heat wave increase necessitates the identification of strategi...

Beyond technology

Creutzig, Felix ; Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Haberl, Helmut ; Khosla, Radhika ; Mulugetta, Yacob ; Seto, Karen C. (2016-09)

The assessment literature on climate change solutions to date has emphasized technologies and options based on cost-effectiveness analysis. However, many solutions to climate change mitigation misalign with such analytical frameworks. Here, we examine demand-side solutions, a crucial class of mitigation options that go beyond technological specification and costbenefit analysis. To do so, we sy...
