Project description

The resilient urban ‘skin’ of the future

Urban heat islands are areas that display increased warmth due to anthropogenic activity. Such areas significantly impact well-being, increasing the need for solutions. Passive cooling methods use design choices to maximise the comfort and health of building users while minimising energy use. These methods have been shown to slowly mitigate urban heat islands. The EU-funded HELIOS project aims to develop novel solutions capable of producing passive cooling without the use of energy while exploiting characteristics of urbanised surfaces, from buildings to outdoor spaces. The project’s goal is to create innovative materials that will act as a ‘skin,’ capable of constituting a sort of surface film that reduces the effects of urban heat islands.
