Pushing the boundaries of glazed façades

Anmäl dig här

This seminar is a dialog between two good friends: an architect and an engineer discussing architectural visions, realization of concepts and questioning boundaries of glazed façades.
The seminar has a clear focus on building envelopes and aims to demonstrate ways in which highly glazed façades can serve architectural design and can co-exist with enhanced indoor climate and energy performance.

A variety of speakers with local and international backgrounds (White Arkitekter, Sweco Architects, Inform Design, ARUP and Markisol) have been invited to demonstrate that reaching ambitious goals and materializing the architectural vision is a result of intelligent, interactive, design driven effort and need not necessarily involve large fees.

Architectural Concepts, Advanced Engineering and Versatile Materials are keywords to this seminar. You are welcome to join this effort to create a communication platform, connecting professionals with diverse interests and a common goal: to create well performing buildings complimented by elaborate façade designs.

Seminar’s target group: architects, developers & engineers.

Presentation of the lecturers: Seminar languages are both English and Swedish.

Architecture and engineering; merging the two worlds (Ola Dellson, architect, White Arkitekter), (Swe.)
Ola will open the seminar by discussing how the boundaries between architecture and engineering are perceived in our real-life practice. Then, he will attempt to identify the potentials arising from those interactions through a series of examples and discuss the necessity of common language and goals within multidisciplinary teams. Essentially his presentation aims to answer one question: in a world where software (from CAD to daylight and optimization algorithms) is a part of architects’ everyday life and engineers push boundaries to realize the architectural vision, how sensible is it to distinguish between those two roles?

Ola Dellson: Ola is an award-winning architect with White Arkitekter, based in Malmö. During the last twenty years, he has been involved in a wide range of projects and in all phases from concept development to tender. He is part of the Malmö Design Computation Community and heading the 3D-printer development at White. Ola explores the interface between engineering and architecture, with a passion for cooperation and emerging digital tools. He strongly believes that computational power and the cunning use of cooperation is going to disrupt the architecture and building practice thoroughly during the next ten to twenty years.

Inviting engineering into early architectural design (Jan-Åke Lindgren, Sweco Architects), (Swe.)
Jan-Åke will present a past which he will deploy the aesthetical and functional parameters that drive design. He will discuss whether advanced design and enhanced performance can co-exist and identify the performance parameters that affect building quality. Focusing on the spaces of interest he will explain the process of “breaking down” the design, identifying the needs, satisfying the set requirements and expressing the architectural vision. The aim of this presentation is to challenge existing boundaries and prove that “questioning the rules” is a pre-requirement for innovative and well-performing design.

Jan-Åke Lindgren: Jan-Åke is an award-winning architect from Sweco Architects with more than 35 years of broad experience. Jan-Åke was involved in many technically complicated projects both as a designer, coordinator and project manager. Some of those projects are the Södra Stationsområdet (80s), Cirkus på Djurgården (90s), and more recent ones such as the extension of Metro Nackagren (Station Nacka Centrum), Gränby Köpstad in Upsala (2016 BREEAM Prize), Jarlahuset (Prize of the Construction Associations in 2013 and the Glass Prize), Bromma Center, Ica´s huvudkontor, Riga Central Railway Station and many others.

Informing Design (Harris Poirazis, CEO of Inform Design), (Eng.)
Harris will discuss whether realizing elaborate designs without compromising performance and costs is possible. Using 3 past projects as examples, he will in a “hands on” way identify critical parameters that impact on performance (e.g. thermal comfort, daylight availability, etc.) and costs, set acceptance bars and suggest appropriate assessment methods. Harris will focus on highly glazed facades and discuss how early involvement of building physics competencies could increase confidence in design, further pushing boundaries and allowing the architectural team to dare without compromising the building’s performance. Essentially, the challenge is to demonstrate that high quality is a result of well thought through design and well-integrated products.

Harris Poirazis: Harris holds a PhD in Building Physics from the department of Construction & Architecture of Lund University. He previously worked in the Environmental Physics and Façade Engineering groups of Arup (London), RISE (Sweden), ACC Glasrådgivare and he is currently the founder of the consulting practice Inform Design. He enjoys the opportunity of working with multidisciplinary teams and has a strong interest in bringing advanced assessment methods on the doorstep of real life design. Harris has worked in the past on a wide range of Swedish and international projects, and collaborated with high profile architectural practices among them Renzo Piano workshop, Zaha Hadid architects, Foster and Partners and others.

Pushing the boundaries (Jake Hacker, Arup), (Eng.)
Jake will show through a number of examples how advanced computer simulation methods are used at the engineering practice Arup to quantify and visualize the indoor and outdoor environment with respect to aspects such as thermal comfort, daylight, building envelope performance and passive and mechanical environmental control systems. He will draw on a number of examples from projects in the UK and internationally where advanced simulation tools have been used to guide decisions and influence outcomes at different points through the design process. The aim of this presentation is to explain in simple terms how understanding of basic principles and advanced assessment methods can lead to elegant engineering solutions that add value to design.

Jake Hacker: Jake holds a PhD from Cambridge University in mathematical modelling and environmental fluid mechanics. He is currently an Associate in Arup’s Advanced Technology + Research group in the London Office. His particular interests are in low-energy building design; methods of passive environmental control; and the relationship between indoor and outdoor climate. He has worked widely with external partners on collaborative research projects and from 2011-16 was CIBSE and Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor of Building Engineering Physics at University College London.

Realizing the possibilities (Mats Åhman, Project sales manager at Markisol AB), (Swe.)
Mats will demonstrate how deep understanding of products and their application helps us provide an effective physical barrier between the outdoors and the indoor building environment. The focus will be on solar protection through a wide variety of shading elements and their functional requirements from operation and users’ perspective. The presentation will emphasize on the significance of an interactive process: architectural vision, performance predictions through simulations and real life application of products, in order to deliver optimum solutions.

Mats Åhman: Mats has 16 years of experience on solar shading working with dealers, contractors and manufacturers. Before the current position, he was employed in ACC Glasrådgivare as shading advisor. Mats is involved in projects from early concept to completed installation with everything from product selection, documentation, functional descriptions, indicative calculations, engineering, budgeting, cost and quotation.
