Urban Sustainability and Smart BuildingStart date: February 2015 | Duration: 9 Months - Full Time | Language: English
The Master in Sustainable Architecture – Smart Building and Urban Innovation @ Istituto Europeo del Design in Turin, is a 9 months full time studio based program.
Sustainability is addressed in terms of Design strategies that optimize environmental, energy and social behaviors of the urban built environment. Smart building involve interactive and web connected technology to be embedded within architecture in order to become aware of what is going on in the surrounding environment and acquire the capability of virtuous reactions. City innovation is the challenging variations that the problematic post-industrial polluted cities will have to face over the next few years. http://iedtorinosmart.com

The first month will be dedicated to introduce the students to the skills of the job, including 3d modeling, digital fabrication, Arduino technology, and principles of environmental strategies. From the second month, and through the next 8 months, the students will work on a challenging thesis project that will be presented to a public audience at the end of the Master. During this phase, a series of activities (theoretical lectures, seminars, design workshops, conferences, construction workshops) will disseminate knowledge and stimulate the students on the topics of Green Energies Design Strategies, Smart Technologies for the Built Environment, Design rating systems and certifications, Big Data, Urban Sharing. All the input coming from these activities will be embedded in the students design work to develop a compelling thesis project.
News and current activities are constantly recorded in the Master blog: http://iedtorinosmart.com

He also manages his own architectural firm in Turin since 1996. His professional experience focus mainly in private and public building refurbishment, restoration and interior design. He has worked on design projects that required the experimental use of new materials, Information Technologies and a design sustainable approach to heritage and the environment.
His practice focuses on landscape integration of systems to the production of renewable energy. He works on research and teaching at DIET (Department of Civil Engineering and Land), University of Pavia, the BEST (Department of Science and Technology of the Built Environment) of the Polytechnic of Milan. Consultant for ERSE (ENEA - Research on Electric System). Member of Scientific Committee - Master Landscapes extraordinary - NABA (New Academy of Fine Arts of Milan) / Politecnico of Milan
Filippo Taidelli, architect, graduated with a dissertation in Sustainable Design which he researched and developed at E.T.S.A.M in Madrid under the tutorship of Ábalos&Herreros. He furthered the experimentation and practice in environmentally sensitive design at Mario Cucinella Architects in Bologna in the role of lead architect from 2000 to 2005. In 2005, he opened the studio Filippo Taidelli Architetto in Milan, a multidisciplinary design studio, realizing architecture, industrial and interior design with special interest toward the experimentation and application of environmental strategies to reduce energy consumption. This approach has been recognized through various awards, exhibitions and conferences in both Italy and abroad.Since 2005, Filippo Taidelli is a Visiting Professor at Scuola Politecnica di Design in the Master’s course of Interior Design. From 2007 to 2011 he was a professor of Interior Design in the Faculty of Design at Milano‘s Politecnico.

Andrea Graziano is an architect, member and co-founder of \"Co-de-iT - Computational Design Italy\", which is currently engaged in teaching workshops about digital tools and digital fabrication into architectural design, lecturing and consultancy work. He runs the internationally renowned \"DigitAG&\" blog about generative and computational design and scripting techniques into architecture. Andrea is an active catalyst through his intense activity of social networking of the paradigm-shift in the fields of architectural research, computation and science. A ‘digital explorer’ and ‘knowmad’ aiming to research, curate and envision, the rapid evolution of science, technology, art and philosophy, their convergence and tooling into ‘the extended human’. Andrea is also collaborating with LaN - Live Architecture Network organizing and teaching in several international workshops.
Alessio Erioli is Engineer and Senior Researcher at Università di Bologna where he also teaches Architectural Design, MArch in Biodigital Architecture, PhD in Architectural Engineering, co-founder and coder at Co-de-iT. He has been advisor of many Master Thesis in Engineering and Architecture; he has lectured for (among others) IaaC (Barcelona), AA Visiting school in Paris, Accademia Belle Arti Bologna, TU Innsbruck, Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico). His interests interweave teaching & design ecologies in Computational design, articulating complexity to trigger emergent potential. His recent interests regard the relations among matter and agency: Agent-Based modeling simulation of Complex Adaptive Systems in architecture coupled with form-finding strategies. He is also skilled in computational design & modeling on several platforms (Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Processing, 3D Studio, Ecotect; scripting skills in C#, Python, RhinoScript).

Graduated in Civil Engineering, specialising in Architectural and Building design, at the Politecnico di Torino. Since 1998, he is Researcher at the Politecnico di Torino University in the field of “Building Technology” currently conducting research in the Department of Structural, Geotechnical and Building Engineering and lecturing on the M.Sc and PhD courses. For over 10 years he has been adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Parma. In 2000, Carlo Ostorero founded the STUDIO DEDALO ARCHITETTURA whose fundamental expertise regards sustainable architectural design according to the state-of-the-art environmental classification criteria (passivhouse) and the most up-to-date solutions in terms of installations and perceived comfort (including photovoltaic and solar thermal energy, wind-power, geothermal vertical probing over a diffused network, optimisation of acoustics and illumination, etc). The evaluation of the environmental impact and the themes of urban renewal and regeneration have stimulated the Studio to become increasingly involved in large-scale urban planning with respect to environmental recovery and artistic landscaping. Over recent years, STUDIO DEDALO ARCHITETTURA has addressed projects of increasing complexity and scale involving, for example, hotels, schools, hospitals, and factories in Italy and abroad. Also consulting is offered in the field of interior design and furnishing, drawing on the collaborations with leading companies recognized around the world in the field of made-in-Italy furniture.
