Forum Future of Building / Facing the Future

The balance between high- and low-tech determines the discourse; however, robustness provides a better definition. It is shown that the complexity in construction and operation leads to the fact that neither energy targets nor user comfort can be achieved. Technology reduces robustness when system failure and user influence significantly impact the result. Passive, user-controlled systems potentially lead to robust buildings.

Forum Future of Building / The construction industry after coronavirus

More than half of the world‘s population is living lives in cities. And the trend is rising: according to pro-jections calculations by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), by 2050 around 70 percent of the world's population will live in cities – more than seven billion people. This growth is an enormous challenge for urban and transport planners, logistics experts and utilities and waste management companies. In addition to that, we have to implement highly ambitious climate targets. Does Corona offer the chance to rethink urban development - from urbanization towards the redesign of rural areas?

Forum Future of Building / Challenge of climate change

Climate neutrality requires the development of a „Solar Hydrogen Economy”, on the one hand for the decarbonisation of the industry and mobility and on the other hand for the long-term storage of the excess electricity from wind and solar energy plants. If the exhaust heat from the “green” hydrogen production (power to gas) is used for district heating the efficiency of the electrolysis rising from approx. 55 up to 90 %. In 2050 the total amount of the “green” waste heat from all the hydrogen electrolysis will be about the actual district heating consumption in Germany.
According to the concept of using the waste heat from a H2-electrolysis, a first climate neutral city district (< 1 t CO2/person/year) with 450 dwelling units, 30 % commercial space and a high school building, is realized in the centre of the town Esslingen. The flat roofs of the building blocks were maximized used for the installation of PV-plants (1.500 kWp). The local produced and additionally imported “green” electricity is used in an electrolyser (1 MWel) for the hydrogen production (ca. 400 kg/day). The “green” H2 is feed in the local gas grid and the waste heat (ca. 60°C) is used via the district heating network for the space heating of the urban quarter. The project is governmental funded by the ministries BMWi and the BMBF.

Forum Future of Building / Future of Living

How are buildings currently planned and constructed in order to meet the needs of a society in transformation? The financial aspect is only one of many when thinking about affordable architecture. A holistic approach is necessary and also needs to address the environmental footprint, building structure, materials, networks, possibilities of transformation and appropriation as well as recycling.

Forum Future of Building / Homes of the future

A fool who claims he could predict how we would like to live tomorrow. Let’s be honest: nobody knows. Houses need to be able to cope with these imponderables and take risks – even the risk to fail. Visiting the (almost) finished Munich residential project "San Riemo“, their architects undertake 33 critical explorations into questions of construction, inhabitation and investment.

Forum Future of Building / Challenge of climate change

The current debate about a responsible quality of life shows a fundamental change in our society that goes far beyond the issues of environmental protection and the climate crisis. It is crucial to reconcile mankind, space and our daily routines into a harmonious relationship. This is why we as architects; designers of space patterns, play a particularly important role in re-establishing this relationship to create a state of co-habitation.

Forum Future of Building / Homes of the future

To build room for living in times of housing shortage is under significant economic pressure. Projects need to be built as fast as possible to provide space, content and qualities are often redefined under this pressure! This overheated process increases the vulnerability, recognized more and more. Often forgotten, such a great need and the immense investment volume also provide an opportunity to rethink housing construction. A better value approach could be, to focus on the people and their needs and requirements. In addition to the appealing (design) quality, the residents' sense of well-being is influenced by the extent to which they are able to make this living space or living environment to their own. This potential for affection can be planned!

We want to establish timber construction (again) as a normal construction method. With this goal in mind, we design and plan residential and commercial buildings as well as office buildings, schools and universities in timber or timber hybrid construction. In our designs we seek an appropriate balance between encounter and concentration. The presentation shows examples of our work and approach.

Forum Future of Building / Digital Transformation

Innovation and new technologies are progressively impacting architecture and construction. The digitisation of the design and planning stages are now well established in practice, and increasingly advanced tools and digitally driven machines are being used in pre-fabrication and on the construction site. The Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research Digital Fabrication (NCCR DFAB) is a research consortium set up in Switzerland to investigate and innovate digital fabrication in the domains of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC). This presentation will showcase innovations being researched at the NCCR DFAB to explain our approach of step-by-step integration of new technologies within existing workforces. By engaging traditional human expertise and combining it with advancements of technologies, materials, and processes we aim to motivate construction into a collaborative hybrid future.

He has held professorships at GSD Harvard University, Columbia, Cornell or Princeton Universities.

Forum Zukunft des Bauens / Facing the Future

Architecture and urbanism were traditionally based on climate, comfort and health, as we can read in treatises of Vitruvius, Palladio or Alberti, where exposure to wind and sun, variations in temperature and humidity influenced the shapes of cities and buildings. These fundamental causes of urban planning and buildings were ignored in the second half of the 20th century thanks to the enormous use of fossil energy by heating and air conditioning systems, pumps and refrigerators, that today cause the greenhouse effect and global warming. Sustainability and fight against climate change force the architects and urban designer to take back seriously the climatic issue in order to base their design on more consideration to the local climatic context and energy resources. Faced with the climatic challenge of the 21st century, we propose to reset our discipline on its intrinsic climatic qualities, where air, light, heat or humidity are recognized are real materials of building, convection, thermal conduction, evaporation, emissivity, or effusivity are becoming design tools for composing architecture and cities, and through materialism dialectic, are able to revolutionize esthetic and social values.

The construction and real estate industry consumes vast quantities of raw materials and therefore has to rethink all processes, plans and investments with regard to their recyclability. The Cradle to Cradle design principle offers a practicable solution for this as a future-oriented concept. With C2C, we can already construct recyclable buildings today and thus counteract the waste of resources and environmental pollution.

Forum Future of Building / The construction industry after coronavirus

As the Corona pandemic has shown, public health care has a much more far-reaching impact on our daily lives than previously thought. On this, architects are in charge to rethink the dimension of building for health. If we would like to think in the medical categories of prevention and intervention, two questions comes on the top: how can urban planning and architecture contribute preventively to health? And how can architecture ensure fast, flexible and efficient intervention, even in times of crisis?

The decarbonisation of the build environment is proceeding too slowly. The efforts so far mainly concentrated on an improvement of the quality of the building skin with respect to its thermal properties and on a change in the energy supply with a shift to renewable types and energy converters used as “add-ons” on the buildings. Holistic strategies including the energy demand aspects require a new thinking in the energy management and a sector-coupling to improve the energy efficiency.

Development takes time. Those who have the time can research new things and don't have to keep going back to the familiar and well-tested measures. Those who have the time can listen to the residents, learn from their experiences and draw the right conclusions from them for a better tomorrow.

Innovations themselves have to be explained. The user must be able to understand them so that he or she can actively claim them. This is the only way we can plan for the long term in a future-oriented manner.

LAVA define architecture as architecture of the project. The designs are the result of a process embedded in an intensive dialogue with the client. Using the cutting edge IT and building technology, particularly sustainable buildings are designed. Projects currently in Germany, Dubai, China and Saudi Arabia, include the German pavilion at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, an energy storage facility in Heidelberg, the food court for the new terminal in Frankfurt and an innovative learning campus in Hamburg.
2016, LAVA was awarded the European Prize for Architecture.

Forum Future of Building / Facing the Future

The lecture bridges the gap between concepts for the cities of tomorrow and the German Pavilion for Expo 2020 in Dubai. By abstracting processes and phenomena from nature, LAVA aims to gain a new perception of construction and spaces. This is independent of scale and applies to master plans as well as buildings. These concepts are implemented in the 'Campus Germany' pavilion.

Forum Future of Building / Future of Living

Living is the most basic human behavior. Everyone lives somewhere - and not everyone in a house. Living is synonymous with being. In the best of cases, existence creates a feeling of home. This is not located in space, but in our souls. I dare say that we have repressed this feeling in its very essence or have completely forgotten it. We live in the corset of conventions. These should be reconsidered.
