Edifici, maestri di sostenibilità

Relatore: Alessandro Marata

Dipartimento Ambiente e Sostenibilità – CNAPPC

Abstract: Alcuni edifici, più di altri, sono particolarmente importanti per l’educazione civica del cittadino. Gli edifici pubblici lo sono sicuramente più di quelli privati. Tra gli edifici pubblici le scuole, le biblioteche e i musei (spazi che il futuro cittadino frequenta fin dai primi anni di vita) sono determinanti per la creazione di una corretta consapevolezza sull’importanza dei temi che riguardano lo sviluppo sostenibile (sociale, ambientale ed economico) della società. L’edificio diventa esso stesso testimone e promotore di un corretto approccio allo sviluppo sostenibile.

Buildings, teachers of sustainability

Speaker: Alessandro Marata

CNAPPC “Environment and Sustainability” Department

AbstractSome buildings, more than others, are particularly important for the civic education of the citizen. The public buildings are certainly more important. Among the public buildings, schools, libraries and museums (spaces that the future citizen attended since the first years of life) are crucial for the creation of a proper awareness of the importance of issues concerning sustainable development (social, environmental and economic) of society. The building itself becomes a witness and promoter of a correct approach to sustainable development.

Il tuo volto silvano. La biblioteca sostenibile

Il tuo volto silvano: Vestiti leggeri e freschi pensieri. Edifici, pratica e didattica. Una breve panoramica delle iniziative e dei dibattiti  sulle biblioteche sostenibili nelle isole Britanniche. RelatoreCarla Marchesan Bibliotecaria e Tutor presso la Prince’s School of Traditional Arts e The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, Londra (Regno Unito).

Abstract: 

Questo intervento prende brevemente in considerazione le seguenti tematiche. I principali dibattiti correnti sulla sostenibilità nell’ambiente edificabile: nuove tecnologie, bio-edilizia e tradizione & sostenibilità.
Possibili implicazioni della consulenza di bibliotecari e utenti nella progettazione di biblioteche e centri informazione.
L’uso di fornitori sostenibili. La posizione di architetti e società edilizie nel dibattito sulla sostenibilità, e quindi la scelta di fornitori, ha un grosso impatto sull’ambiente, poiché influenza l’uso di materie prime, l’impatto della produzione e uso di materiali edili, l’impatto degli edifici, i loro contenuti e il tessuto urbano durante la loro vita, l’influenza sull’ambiente e sugli esseri umani, la produzione di materiali di scarto e infine il destino degli edifici in disuso.
Il ruolo educativo di bibliotecari accademici e che lavorano nelle aziende di settore nel forgiare i professionisti di un futuro sostenibile.
Digitalizzazione, tecnologia cellulare, OERS, MOOCS, e altre risorse collaborative e condivise, e il ruolo dei bibliotecari nel creare, valutare ed insegnare.

Abstract: This paper will briefly consider the following.
The main views concerning sustainability in the built environment: New technologies, working with nature and tradition & sustainability.
Some of the possible implications of the role of librarians and library users as consultants in the design stage of libraries and learning centres.

Sustainable supply chain. The stance practices and builders have within the sustainability debate, and therefore the choices they make with regard the supply chain, have far reaching consequences, as they affects the exploitation of raw materials, the impact of the production and use of building materials, the impact of buildings, their contents and the urban fabric over their life time on the environment and on people; the byproducts and finally the disposal of unused buildings.

The role of academic and practice librarians as educators to forge and support sustainable practitioners.

Digitisation, mobile technology, OERS, MOOCS & other collaborative and shared resources, and the role of librarians to: create, assess, deliver.

SPQR-ND: interpreting the Roman Forum through early architectural publications

SPQR-ND: Interpreting the Roman Forum Through Early Architectural Publications

Speaker: Viveca Pattison Robichaud

Abstract: The University of Notre Dame’s Architecture Library, School of Architecture, and the Center for Digital Scholarship developed the SPQR-ND iPad Application which is now freely available for download in the iPad App Store.

This project started because of student desire to access the rare and antique architectural publications from our Ryan Rare Book Room that include plans, sections, and elevations of important buildings and monuments in the historic city center of Rome while studying in Rome during their third year and grew into a new model to study historic structures.

The Architecture Library’s rare book collection houses many important publications that document the historic city center of Rome and the Roman Forum including Andrea Palladio’s I Quattro Libri dell’Architettura (1570), Antoine Babuty Desgodets’ Les Édifices Antiques de Rome, Dessinés et Mesurés Très Exactement (1682), Domenico de’ Rossi’s Stvdio d’Architettvra Civile (1702-1721), Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s Varie Vedute di Roma (1748), and George Ledwell Taylor and Edward Cresy’s The Architectural Antiquities of Rome (1874). These texts, among others, were digitized and made available in full-text searchable PDF format on the Architecture Library’s website under “Digitized Rare Books” (http://library.nd.edu/architecture/ DigitizedRareBooks.shtml).

While this solved the problem of providing access to these rare volumes to our students abroad, we were interested in combining the historic methods of documenting and representing the built environment found in these texts with mapping and mobile applications as a way to bring the library into the field.

Our goal was to provide students, scholars, and the general public with the opportunity to study the monuments of the Roman Forum through this important collection of early architectural publications and create a unique way to visualize the development of Rome. With over 1,500 buildings and monuments digitized, we knew that we needed to start with a project that we could achieve and that could stand as a model to be expanded on and refined going forward, so we focused specifically on the Roman Forum. Architecture students who work in the library were involved with the process and plan and worked gathering, collecting and presenting the data while the team built a deliverable model. Based on a suggestions from the Dean of the School of Architecture we called our project SPQR-ND. Our project provides the fully digitized publications virtually broken apart in order to study different By Viveca Pattison Robichaud, University of Notre Dame

SPQR-ND Home Screen. SPQR-ND Map Homepage. SPQR-ND Layers, Nolli map layered on 2013 Satellite View. interpretations of particular monuments in the Forum sideby-side. The SPQR-ND app is designed to allow access to historic documentation of the monuments through either a map view or with a browsable list. Each monument entry contains a historic drawing and a current photograph, which the viewer can fade between, demonstrating the transition over time and showing the current state of the monument. Each of the historic plates is zoomable and each monument features multiple representations. Bibliographic information on each plate is given allowing the viewer to find the plate within the context of the original volume, either in-person or digitally from the Architecture Library’s website. Each monument in the SPQR-ND app is geolocated, which enables the user to understand not just their design but also their physical placement in the Forum through visualizing them on a map. The app also includes layers of historic maps of Rome. These maps, Giambattista Nolli’s 1748 map, Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s 1778 map, Taylor-Cresy’s 1874 map, a 2013 satellite map, and a hand drawn map of the Roman Forum by fourth year architecture student Michi Aman, are presented together as layers, which the viewer can fade through to see changes over time as represented by cartographers. The user is able to compare visually the different historic conceptions of the layout of Rome. This project started at the request of our students who study in Rome, and we have involved students in each phase of the process, from scanning the texts, virtually breaking apart the volumes to pull out the buildings and monuments, geolocating them in Rome, and creating content for the app. Students who work on the app are given attribution for their work within the app itself, and we have a waiting list of students interested in working for the Architecture Library because they want to work on these projects. Future plans for the SPQR-ND app include not only making it available on an iPhone, but also adding additional monuments and buildings within the center of Rome, translating the app into multiple languages, and developing a 3D viewer that will allow users to study highquality scanned data stitched together to create a virtual monument. For those interested in learning more about the SPQR-ND app, it will be presented in the Emerging Technologies Forum at the ARLIS/NA Annual Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, this upcoming March. 

AbstractAgainst the background of globalization and a new awareness by customers, sustainability and environmental management have become more and more important.

In 2011 ekz.bibliotheksservice GmbH, the largest German library supplier, implemented an environmental management strategy and achieved DIN EN ISO 14001 certification. This certification is becoming as important as the certification ISO 9001, which is an international measure of requirements for quality management systems. The DIN 14001 standard supports companies in systemology, and well-documented, objective and continual evaluation of their environmental performance.

This presentation focusses on environmental management and describes the basic considerations to be taken into account before introducing such a management approach. It describes the enterprise ekz and the steps to be taken throughout the process. To conclude, the next stage in the process is described and a view of where the business is going in terms of environmental awareness is outlined.
