LISD is co-organising this year’s Sustainable Transport event of the United Nations Center for Regional Development (UNCRD / Intergovernmental 12th Regional Environmental Sustainable Transport Forum in Asia). It will take place on October 28, 2019, in Hanoi, Vietnam.
LISD participated in the Kick-Off Workshop of the Renewable Energy Business and Practice Educational Program in Africa (REd), which took place on 4-9 Augusta, in Nairobi, Kenya.
Solar Decathlon Europe 2019 will take place in Szentendre, Hungary 22-24 July 2019.
The event unites the local government of Szentendre, EMI, a non-profit organisation for quality control and innovation in building, and BME, the Budapest University of Technology & Economics.
SDE19 in Szentendre will emphasize renovation simulation, providing a frame of existing buildings
that pose renovation challenges stemming from local urban factors.
The Solar Decathlon Europe is an international competition that challenges collegiate teams to design and build houses powered exclusively by the renewable energy sources: the main aim of competition is to promote of architectural solutions related to solar energy, renewable energies and innovative technologies through the houses built by the university teams.
Prof. Droege reviews and critiques the seven entries to the URBAN TERRITORIES IN TRANSITION. THE GREATER GENEVA CONSULTATION Competition, at the Trienniale Milano 2019.
Background – In 2008, the French-Swiss area around Geneva concluded a decades long development by creating a new territorial entity, the Greater Geneva. Since then, substantial work has been done in creating an ecological metropolis in domains such transports, housing and landscape preservation.
Through an extended public-private partnership, the Braillard Architectural Foundation initiated the Greater Geneva Consultation, in which seven interdisciplinary teams were selected to design the transitional phase of the agglomeration: taking into account such aspects as energy, water and other resources, biodiversity, migration, equality, and mobility.
As Special Advisor to the Renewables in Cities 2019 Global Status Report (REC-GSR), Peter Droege welcomes the first Preliminary Findings that has just been released.
