Moving Cities/Moving Communities

Fry Montage 500w tiny

Beyond the most immediate concerns of dealing with the biophysical, social and material devastation of the 2019/2020 fire season there is clear need to acknowledge and develop a far more comprehensive and strategic approach of adapting to climate change in Australia over coming decades. Whatever the outcome of emissions reduction nationally and globally even more major challenges and risks are going to arrive. Architecture and planning practices have a significant role to play in responding to this prospect, but to do this they themselves need to adapt, change perceptions and practice. Moving Cities/Moving Communities is one area of action that provides a basis to explore the nature of such change.

Air tightness and thermal bridging in buildings

Tas online CPD214 600 x 300

Achieving air tight or leak free building structure and eliminating thermal bridging of the building fabric is imperative to achieving a successful thermal comfortable building. If there are gaps in the building structure then uncontrolled amount of external air (hot or cold) can infiltrate the building. A thermal bridge in the building structure increases infiltration losses and may cause surface condensation or interstitial condensation in the building structure. This presentation shows of how we can design air tight buildings, and how we can eliminate thermal bridging within the building structure. In addition, a case study will be presented how a high degree of air tightness and the control of thermal bridging has been achieved at the recently completed Passive House at South Hobart.

Back to Earth: Rammed Earth Construction - Theory and Practice

Rammed earth generic

Rammed Earth Constructions have become a much loved building material for Australian designers and builders understanding its unique thermal and aesthetic benefits. No other construction techniques offers the same humble majestic construction. In an area of rising concerns for our environmental
future, rammed earth constructions can offer low embodied energy, high thermal mass and well insulated external wall systems.

This presentation will demonstrate how this age-old construction technique is still playing an important role in today’s contemporary architecture. Examples of ancient rammed earth buildings to to-days modern rammed earth buildings will be part of this presentation. The practical application of ‘how to construct rammed earth buildings’ will be covered by the experienced builder Andy Powell. He will also showing some of his buildings he has worked on.

Positioning Architecture

Presented by John Choi from CHROFI.

Given the constant evolving nature of a place, expanding the frame of reference deeper in time, and broader in context can provide useful perspectives beyond what is ‘present’ today. The talk will outline the inter-dependence of all things and look at the dynamics of change across time and space. It will draw from holistic perspectives emerging across disciplines to better
understand systems of linked ecological, economic, and institutional processes. The talk will use the lens of time to position architecture as temporal relational structures, physical and nonphysical and design as an act of shaping these relational flows of matter, energy and ideas to a more productive state.

This seminar is worth 1 informal CPD point.

Environmental Aspects of Lighting: Light responsibly

Improving rather than eliminating.

Artificial lighting is often referred to as one of humankind’s greatest triumphs over the natural world and the impact that we have had on the darker hours and its many and varied inhabitants has been profound and far-reaching. We need to be selective about how we design lighting if we are going to respect nature, our future and enrich our experience of the world. It is our obligation to light responsibly by improving how we design our nightscapes rather than eliminating opportunities. This talk will discuss the role that lighting can play in creating human engagement with the built environment and how we can mitigate our environmental impact through intelligent design.

Bushfire Responsive Architecture

Presented by By Mark Chladil and Tom O’Connor

Bushfire is Tasmania’s most prevalent natural hazard and presents significant risk to our communities. Planning, designing and building for bushfire are important strategies for facilitating the long-term resilience and sustainability of our communities. Designers have an important role in this context and are often challenged to resolve competing design objectives, one of which is to meet contemporary requirements for bushfire protection.

Join AIA and representatives from the TFS for a discussion on the current state-of-play in this space. Specific topics to be covered include current planning and building regulations, best practice design principles and performance-based solutions.

This seminar is worth 1.5 formal CPD point on completion of the formal assessment activity.
