Energy efficiency and design measures in social infrastructure planning (the case of Tehran)

Khodabakhsh, Peyman (2018)

Given the robust trends towards global urbanization propensity, the energy and sustainability challenges cannot be addressed without explicit consideration of urban energy systems and their specific challenges and opportunities. A considerable amount of energy waste in the building and transport sector comes about due to inefficient development patterns as well as consumption habits. Towards st...

Cybernetification II: toward a sixth ecology

Werner, Liss C. (2018-01-24)

Digital infrastructure and learning algorithms, digital industry and automated services, digital society, humanities, and health converge with the Anthropocene. This mix has given birth to extraordinary challenges; for architecture as discipline, in its role as cultural heritage and as materialized co-evolution of man and machine. Despite of re-modelling and re-designing work-flows to integrate...

Fold Unfold : deployable structures and digital fabrication

Borrego, Ignacio ; García Martínez, Pedro ; Solano Rojo, Montserrat ; Peña Fernández-Serrano, Martino (2018)

The publication "Fold, Unfold : Deployable Structures and Digital Fabrication" is the documentation of the workshop of the same name hosted at TU-Berlin from february till march 2017 in collaboration with ETSAE Cartagena. The main objective of this seminar was to design and build different prototypes of deployable structures that can colonize a space to be inhabited temporarily.

A cloud recycling light

Werner, Liss C. (2017-09)

The paper focuses on the question ``How does our built environment, urban culture and architectural production change through humans feeding back into digital systems of pre-fabrication and systems fostering industry 4.0?'' It discusses some risks and possibilities of digitisation and the city in an era of sustainability, networked design methods, production processes and digital communica...

In quest of code

Werner, Liss C. (2015)

Architects who apply their generative modelling and scripting skills for creating virtual and prototypical spaces through the usage of algorithms and bespoke coding are increasingly confronted with an application in the real material world. The article suggests computational design strategies and two different architectural and urban prototypes for an era in which intelligent material, robotic ...

The Introduction to 'Cybernetics: state of the art' gives an overview of the contributions the first volume of the book series ‘CONVERSATIONS’. ‘CON-VERSATIONS’ is based on and driven by cybernetic principles. It engages with pressing questions for architecture, urban planning, design and infrastructure; in an age of increasing connectivity, AI and robotization; in an evolutionary state of the ...

CYBERNETIFICATION I: Cybernetics Feedback Netgraft in Architecture

Werner, Liss C. (2017)

During the last decades, architecture has changed its role from fetishizing and fertilizing objectification and objects alike towards glamorising the processing of relations, observations and materialization of the 'objectile'. Steering the design process in contemporary computational architecture through and with a variety of dynamic, interconnecting agents affords re-framing, reviewing, and r...

Local governance practices in so-called 'informal' urban neighbourhoods

Kummel, Olivia (2017)

The problem of rapid urbanisation and associated poverty is not new, but many people in urban areas around the globe, especially in countries of the South, still live under abject conditions. The inhabitants of these ‘underserved’ settlements do not always accept their circumstances; instead, they fight for improvements in their living conditions and organise themselves when the public institut...

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...

CYBERNETICS: STATE OF THE ART is the first volume of the book series CON-VERSATIONS. Driven by cybernetic thinking, it engages with pressing questions for architecture, urban planning, design and automated infrastructure; in an age of increasing connectivity, AI and robotization and an evolutionary state of the Anthropocene - perpetuating angst-ridden anxiety as well as excitement and joy of a ...

Cut Place Extend : Berliner Ring

Borrego, Ignacio ; Barrera, Gabriela ; Vranjakovic, Mirza (2018)

CoLab is a Collaborative Design Laboratory. Its goal is to investigate those transfers which shall exist between design strategies and new design processes employed in contemporary industry, to apply to the design practice and architectural representation, employing a collaboration model based on collective work. During this semester CoLab students had to project a continuous building along an ...

Bioenergy production and sustainable development

Robledo-Abad, Carmenza ; Althaus, Hans-Jörg ; Berndes, Göran ; Bolwig, Simon ; Corbera, Esteve ; Creutzig, Felix ; Garcia-Ulloa, John ; Geddes, Anna ; Gregg, Jay S. ; Haberl, Helmut ; Hanger, Susanne ; Harper, Richard J. ; Hunsberger, Carol ; Larsen, Rasmus K. ; Lauk, Christian ; Leitner, Stefan ; Lilliestam, Johan ; Lotze-Campen, Hermann ; Muys, Bart ; Nordborg, Maria ; Ölund, Maria ; Orlowsky, Boris ; Popp, Alexander ; Portugal-Pereira, Joana ; Reinhard, Jürgen ; Scheiffle, Lena ; Smith, Pete (2017)

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 ...
