The aim of this research project is to experiment a bioclimatic approach to planning in order to bring about an improvement in the thermo-hygrometric well-being of the inhabitants as well as a reduction in the environmental impact of the building.

Sustainable planning cannot ignore the environmental awareness that belonged to traditional building cultures.

Abstract

The aim of this research project is to experiment a bioclimatic approach to planning in order to bring about an improvement in the thermo-hygrometric well-being of the inhabitants as well as a reduction in the environmental impact of the building. It attempts to link architecture to the environment. The research starts off with a systematic evaluation of natural resources such as wood, earth and water. The researching and cataloguing of local traditional building techniques and buildings made in raw earth support the research. The aim of this study is to identify an architectural bioclimatic model with limited energy consumption, which can also be presented as a model to be used in contexts that are different from the experimental one. It has been verified that the conditions of comfort within the habitat can improve if the building is part of the life cycle of Nature, if it does not obstruct it but “exploits” it, if it allows itself to be pervaded by its flow, if it finds the materials and, if at the end of its life cycle, it returns to Nature without leaving profound traces. Sustainable planning cannot ignore the environmental awareness that belonged to traditional building cultures. Presenting them again today is not intended as a return to the past but as a modern rereading of their use, as a normal evolution of techniques whose aim is both to reduce energy consumption and recover a cultural identity characterised by a general state of well-being.
