Active House Autumn School!

7th Active House Symposium

On 16 and 17 October 2019 the Active House Alliance held its 7th symposium, where experts from all over the world interested in the sustainable construction exchanged ideas and best practices. This is the first time that this international event has come to North America.

The focus of this year’s Symposium has been the interlink between sustainable house and the digital era. Respected professionals from business, engineering, architecture and academia shared their view at the various panels and presentations held in the two-days event on sustainable design; community wellbeing within architecture, design, planning and engineering; indoor air quality; cognitive buildings; the activeness of houses.

The event has ended with the Active House Label Awards. The Jury Committee evaluated the submissions sent prior to the event from various countries like Italy, China, and Ukraine. In their consideration, the Jury members had in mind the three concepts of an Active House: comfort, energy and environment. All submitted projects were assessed by a professional jury composed of international building experts, chaired by Professor Marco Imperadori, Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Eileen Meyer, architect (Italy), Shaun Joffe, executive director, Great Gulf (Canada), Arianna Brambilla, Lecturer, Sydney University (Australia), Wolfram Trinius, Civil Engineer, Ingenieubüro Trinius, Hamburg (Germany), and Peder Vejsig Pedersen, Board member and Renewable Energy specialist at European Green Cities (Denmark).
