Regenerative Design in the Digital Practice
Autumn Training School and Conference in Malaga by Institute of Architecture and Technology and COST RESTORE CA16114
The aim of the conferences and the training school is the digital implementation of Regenerative Sustainable Design principles in the transformation of existing sites. Via the use of freeware digital parametric modelling, the challenges are to improve outdoor microclimate qualities and the indoor wellbeing, operating a transformation that responds to the criteria of Circular Economy.
The research and design project will represent, in this regard, an opportunity for enhancing life in all its manifestations. This presumes shifting the focus from a solely based human-centred design process into a nature-centred one, where “people and buildings can commit to a healthy relationship with the environment where they are placed”. Such approaches are discussed in morning conferences and in the afternoon scientific driven design developments.

Do you have skills in sustainable Desing and on the implemntation of UN Sustainable Developments Goals? Or have you been applying Grasshopper based modelling of Outdoor Climate, LCA-Circular Economy, or Wellbeing? If the answer is yes to any of this question, and you would like to exchange and further develop your research and practical skills in an intensive design competition, this Training School in Malaga (15th to 19th of October) is for you. You will be paid 800 euros to participate in 5 days of pure design and modelling, digital tutorials from the international trainers and scientific conferences.
