Welcome | Sustainable Design in Architecture and Urban Planning: Inspirations, Principles, Methods and Tools. | Scoop.it

The goal is to share knowledge and ideas for pratictioners and students in architecuture. You will not find any green washing here. But a series o information that are scientific and performances based. As well, you will find inspirations for your design, tools and methods.

Changes in observed climate extremes in global urban areas - IOPscience

Climate extremes have profound implications for urban infrastructure and human society, but studies of observed changes in climate extremes over the global urban areas are few, even though more than half of the global population now resides in urban areas. Here, using observed station data for 217 urban areas across the globe, we show that these urban areas have experienced significant increases (p-value <0.05) in the number of heat waves during the period 1973–2012, while the frequency of cold waves has declined. Almost half of the urban areas experienced significant increases in the number of extreme hot days, while almost 2/3 showed significant increases in the frequency of extreme hot nights. Extreme windy days declined substantially during the last four decades with statistically significant declines in about 60% in the urban areas. Significant increases (p-value <0.05) in the frequency of daily precipitation extremes and in annual maximum precipitation occurred at smaller fractions (17 and 10% respectively) of the total urban areas, with about half as many urban areas showing statistically significant downtrends as uptrends. Changes in temperature and wind extremes, estimated as the result of a 40 year linear trend, differed for urban and non-urban pairs, while changes in indices of extreme precipitation showed no clear differentiation for urban and selected non-urban stations.
Emanuele Naboni's insight:

A factual based article about city and widening extremes in climate.

Just Jali

Carved screens, aka jaali. Jali have a close relationship with the arrival of Islam into India, as they are connected with the Islamic customs of purdah and enforced domestic privacy (heavily gendered). They also have considerable benefits in terms of physical comfort in hot climates; the screens let in only diffused light while freely allowing breezes to pass through. And of course, like most ornamental devices, they were frequently an opportunity to showcase wealth and one's generosity as an artistic patron.

We still teach students daylight factors. It is time to make them aware of new and more useful metrics such as Spatial Daylight Autonomy and Annual Sun Exposure.

Tracking Sustainability in Architecture

A chat with William McDonough, Ray Kappe, Glen Small, and others on the history of sustainable architecture.
Emanuele Naboni's insight:

Frank Gehry’s Disney Hall of 2003 is the typical of avant-gardist architecture trying hard to draw attention it itself without expressing any social ideal. “Avant-gardists sometimes play at being radical by claiming that their architecture ‘subverts’ conventional 'paradigms,' but they are just professors talking to other professors,” he argues. “They are not part of a larger movement to reform society, as mid-century architects were part of the larger progressive movement of their time.”
