Solutions for outdoor climate adaptation

Descrizione del progetto

Nuove progettazioni sensibili al clima per la vita all’aria aperta

A causa della rapida urbanizzazione, le città sono sempre meno in grado di sostenere la vita all’aria aperta. Il progetto SOLOCLIM, finanziato dall’UE, mira a sviluppare un programma di formazione dottorale che consenta a giovani ricercatori di generare soluzioni per la vita all’aria aperta nelle città. SOLOCLIM intende sviluppare soluzioni di questo tipo su diverse scale, includendo quartieri e città di più grandi dimensioni, e testarne gli effetti. Il settore dell’architettura e della progettazione urbana e del paesaggio ha bisogno di queste soluzioni innovative, in quanto l’adattamento al clima nelle città rappresenta una delle maggiori sfide per il futuro. SOLOCLIM formerà esperti in questo campo, offrendo ai dottorandi una progettazione avanzata e sensibile al clima.

Obiettivo

The aim of SOLOCLIM is to develop a doctoral training programme that enables young researchers to generate solutions for urban outdoor. The aim of SOLOCLIM is to develop a doctoral training programme that enables young researchers to generate solutions for urban outdoor environments. Projections show that urbanisation could add another 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050 and the cumulative effect of all the negative urban climate impacts of urbanisation such as the occurrence of urban heat islands as well as distinctive wind patterns in cities create discomfort and health risks. As climate change will exacerbate these urban and microclimatic problems citizens need to be protected. As cities create their own climates, the solutions to these problems are to be found in the (re-)design of cities. Some solutions are known such as the use of vegetation, but there are still many remaining questions about the impact of vertical green as well as the proper distribution of green in cities to have an optimal effect. Moreover, upcoming systems using water vapour as a coolant as well as flexible systems that respond to microclimate have not been studied yet. SOLOCLIM will develop such solutions on different scale levels from small scale around buildings to a larger neighbourhood/city scale and test their effects.
The industry in architecture, urban and landscape design is in need of these innovative solutions as climate adaptation in cities is one of the largest challenges for the future. All plans and designs that the industry develops have to respond to the urban (micro)climate challenges. Apart from the availability of solutions the industry also needs the expertise. This expertise involves design and research skills related to urban (micro)climate. SOLOCLIM trains experts in this field and offers a training for advanced climate responsive design that will be offered to the PhD students as well as some parts to a broader community and beyond the duration of SOLOCLIM.
