Welcome to PROF/TRAC’s fifth newsletter with essentials on nZEB training

What is modernization?
Modernization means: upgrading, renovation, reconstruction, expansion, conversion, restoration works, revitalization, repair, changes in landscapes and space.
The project by the architects Anna & Eugeni Bach turns the Pavilion into a mock-up, with all the surfaces clad with the same white material that shows the representative role of both the original work and its reconstruction. For 11 days, the Pavilion will turn into a 1:1 scale model of the longest-standing temporary pavilion in modern architecture.
In the summer of 2014, EAAE Council was awarded an Erasmus+ Project titled “Confronting Wicked Problems: Adapting Architectural Education to the New Situation in Europe”. Having run from September 1, 2014 to August 31, 2017, the so called “Wicked Project” has focused on certain aspects that play a substantial role in the present and near future of architecture’s teaching and practice, namely professional knowledge, heritage and sustainability. Results obtained by twenty-five researchers organized in three think tanks along with many stakeholders, have been condensed in a final report and eleven attachments which are now made available to the public.

Margins, boundaries and borders Relationships between built space and social structures
In the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), ACE and the Federal Chamber of German Architects (BAK) organised on Thursday 22 June in Brussels two public events on the theme Architecture: Towards a Step Change in Building Performance. In the context of the on-going revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the objective was to share feedback from architectural projects that have successfully overcome the challenges of achieving healthy, comfortable and productive environments at measurably low energy and resource consumption. Both events have enabled a debate to shed light on the architectural determinants of building performance and the imperative to consider building performance in a broader and more holistic perspective.
