The construction sector is responsible for 40% of the consumption of energy in the world. Whichever type of intervention in a territory, whether it be urban, architectural, infrastructural or landscape, has to consider strategies for the management of resources, the reduction of the energy demand and benefit from renewable sources of energy. The 5th installment of the MEEYAB elaborates on this new collection of urgently necessary knowledge, identifying the essential tools needed for the approach towards a model of development, compatible with the environmental balance.
The UCJC School of Architecture has designed the current Master in a very specific way, with the experience gained from the four previous installments and the healthy aspiration of converting into an international academic standard in energy efficiency and bioclimatic architecture. With this objective in mind, from September onwards this installment’s staff will consist of the prestigious architect Anupama Kundoo, director of the specialisation Affordable Habitat, who, parallel to the regular classes of a pair of assignments, will also teach an on-site workshop that incorporates direct experience in India.
