La Banda dei Bandi. Regeneration: contest di progettazione per la riqualificazione sostenibile degli edifici
Macro Design Studio in collaboration with The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) is proud to organize REGENERATION, the first design competition in Europe entirely based on the LBC protocol.
REGENERATION as the first “generation” of young professionals (architects, engineers) that can “regenerate” with their own ideas the built environment, getting the best possible performances for the building.
REGENERATION is the first design competition in Europe entirely based on the Living Building Challenge protocol.
The Living Building Challenge™ (LBC) is a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to rapidly diminish the gap between current limits and the end-game positive solutions we seek. LBC is a Visionary Path to a Regenerative Future.
REGENERATION is a design workshop in which teams composed of young professionals are called to develop a project of sustainable requalification of an existing public building for the local community.
Every team should respond to specific requirements defined in the announcement: integrative design, synergistic development of the project and sharing of expertise are necessary prerogatives to tackle this challenge.
The purpose of the competition is to show the best sustainable regeneration project for an existing public building in terms of architecture, energy efficiency, livability and relationship with social, urban and natural context.
REGENERATION will take place at Centrale Fies, Dro (Trento – Italy), on April 15th to 18th, 2015.
Selection of 15 young participants is open! See the Application Form as attachment.
The deadline is January 30th 2015.
Official language: English.
