May 27 2021
The Department of Architecture’s research group at the University of Florence, will launch a thematic seminar including training workshops and a design competition, for architecture students, in order to identify the best architectural energy retrofit solutions for the pilot building of Med-EcoSuRe, Santa Verdiana.
A jury is put in place for the evaluation of the proposals which includes, in addition to the academic staff, the following stakeholders:
- TheTechnical Office of University of Florence;
- The Municipality of Florence;
- The Superintendency of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the metropolitan city of Florence;
- The provinces of Pistoia and Prato, as a body responsible for the protection of the architectural heritage.
The winning project of the design competition will be developed further and integrated into the technological mix for the efficiency improvement interventions of the Med-EcoSuRe pilot. Besides, thanks to the monitoring system already installed in the pilot building, it will be possible to observe, evaluate and quantify the improvement of indoor environmental quality, in terms of comfort and environmental well-being, as well as the energy savings resulting from the retrofit interventions.
