Relationship between architecture and environment: the new residences

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The relationship between architecture and the environment, within the contemporary debates, concerns the issue of eco-efficiency and environmental sustainability. The research aims to identify possible development strategies applied to the project of residences. Defined the theoretical framework, we will proceed with the study case design included in a portion of land whose morphological, structural and functional changes in environmental system are rebalanced naturally or artificially in quantitative and qualitative terms, pursuing the optimization and savings of energy consumption. It will be defined in this way a new awareness project that does not arise for partial revisions and micro-shifting of the balance in the environment, but for the complete restoration of these dynamics in order to assert the environmental sustainability of the final product.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
