The workshop poses the question how should we act to achieve more sustainable urban environments. We will explore two main ways to approach this question: one is related to the policies that the city can adopt in order to promote more environmental-friendly practices; the second one is related to the physical design of the urban environment and how this can influence sustainability. The objective of the studio is twofold: first, to provide a basic knowledge on the topic of sustainability at the urban scale (policies and design) and second, to explore possible future scenarios through a design project that intentionally considers the implications of the different urban forms for the construction of specific environment and energy-oriented urban strategies. The two topics of which policies and which design towards urban sustainability will frame the structure of the course and organize the calendar of the lectures. [more]

  Main Seminars

Città e cambiamento climatico, 2011

18 January 2013 | Seminar: Sustainability and Smartness: Towards the city of tomorrow
The seminar investigates how the concepts of “environmental sustainability” and “smartness” are creating new challenges for private stakeholders. In particular, the development and application of new smart technologies has already generated solid business opportunities, and at the same time has created the basis for the implementation of feasible sustainability policies at the local and global scale.

Città e cambiamento climatico, 2011

28 November 2011 | Seminario: Città e cambiamento climatico: l'azione locale
Ponendo a confronto le esperienze condotte a diverse scale, si intendono mettere a fuoco le azioni per la mitigazione delle emissioni di gas serra, e le modalità di integrazione di tali azioni con le politiche urbanistiche. Il Seminario prevede: un inquadramento disciplinare, una presentazione delle politiche nazionali e europee per il contenimento delle emissioni di gas serra, l'illustrazione di alcuni risultati del programma Concerto e quindi l'approfondimento dei PAES (Piano di Azione per l’Energia Sostenibile) comunali, suddivisi per scala delle città.

  Lectures [more]

energy and urban planning studio

energy and urban planning studio
The lectures aim at covering the two main topics offered at this studio and presented above. The lectures are organized consequently in two series. The first series, introduced by prof. Stefano Pareglio, is called "Energy, climate change and local action to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions". The second one presented by prof. Eugenio Morello, deals with the topic "Energy, environment and the city form". In particular, the first series introduces the policies (mitigation and adaptation) towards carbon neutral cities and analyses issues related to energy sources and the market to figure out possible scenarios; the second series of lectures investigates how urban designers and planners can work on the physical layout of the urban form in order to improve the overall sustainability of cities and reduce the environmental footprint of ecological cycles, by improving the efficiency of mobility and energy management (savings and production based on a short energy chain). All the speeches have the goal to introduce the students to the topic of sustainable development applied to the urban planning discipline. Most of the lectures are given during the first half of the semester.
