This project is created by Group 7, MSc02 2014, Architecture and Design, Aalborg University. The project theme is to use the Integrated Design Process in order to develop sustainable architecture in the urban context of Aalborg city. The main task of the project is to design a zero energy mixed-use building complex, primary based on housing.
The idea is to acquire new skills, knowledge and to get a better understanding of sustainable approaches through the development of a building design with use of the integrated design process methodology. Therefore, the goal is to get acquainted with strategies in the field of sustainable architecture and passive energy technologies in relation to the indoor environment.
By analyzing the existing situation of the southern part of Sygehus Nord in Aalborg, we are defining the potentials and challenges associated closely with this localization. Thereafter it is possible to maximize benefits regarding the micro and macroclimate together with social aspects of this area.
The project is supervised by Hans Bruun Olesen, Research Assistant at the Department of Architecture, AAU and technical supervisor Jerome Le Dreau Research assistant, PhD Fellow at Department of Civil Engineering, AAU. These supervisors should be credited for their help and guidance, which we have received during the project development.
