The Architecture Research Incubator is a central facility at the Department of ARCHITECTURE for coordinating INTERDISCIPLINARY research and development competencies in the design, engineering, urban development and IT sectors. It strengthens existing RESEARCH activities, opens up new fields of research and acquires projects. It organizes development partnerships with BUSINESSES and institutions in the municipal region of Munich. The participating research groups work from a co-working space that adjoins the prototyping workshops at the Technical Center. The facility promotes students with a strong research focus and aims to STRENGTHEN the culture of project DEVELOPMENT, cooperation, entrepreneurship and funding application at the Department of Architecture.

Agricultural Lighting Facade

Mariana Yordanova, wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der Fakultät für Architektur, präsentierte das Projekt Agricultural Lighting Facade (A.L.F.). Das Forschungsprojekt ist ein Zusammenschluss zwischen dem Architecture Research Incubator (ARI), der Professur für Green Technologies in Landscape Architecture (Prof. Ferdinand Ludwig) und dem Lehrstuhl für Raumkunst und Lichtgestaltung (Prof. Hannelore Deubzer). A.L.F. hat das Ziel, Glasfassaden in Großstädten durch eine neu entwickelte Vertical Farming-Technologie für eine ganzjährige lokale Produktion von frischem Gemüse zu erschließen. Damit soll die Umnutzung von Freiflächen in der Natur zu landwirtschaftlichen Flächen gebremst und die Erzeugung von frischen Lebensmitteln an den Ort ihres Konsums gebracht werden: nämlich in Großstädte und Metropolregionen, wo knapp 70% der Weltbevölkerung in der Zukunft leben werden. Derzeit wird ein Antrag auf Fördermittel für das Projekt vorbereitet. Die Förderung soll eine Produktentwicklung und Kooperation mit der Industrie unterstützen. An der Antragstellung nehmen neben der TU München, auch die Unternehmen Barthelme LED Solutions aus Nürnberg und das Ingenieurbüro Hausladen (Prof. Gerhard Hausladen) aus Kirchheim teil.

Peer2Peer Special

How smart is the current building stock and how can it become smarter? Solutions for upgrading smartness of existing buildings is the focus of the H2020 project proposal being jointly developed by TUM and University College London (UCL). Manuel de Borja Torrejon (TUM) and Esfandiar Burman (UCL) report their experience organizing this bid and present the new Smart Readiness Indicator.

Dipl-Ing. M.Sc. Manuel de Borja Torrejon is an architect and work as a research and teaching associate at Prof. Thomas Auer´s Chair of Building Technology and Climate Responsive Design in the TUM Department of Architecture. His expertise is on building simulation for indoor environmental quality and energy performance assessment. He has worked on research projects on demand-side management in buildings and is currently conducting his PhD on this topic. As a part of his activities at TUM he is involved in the development of European project proposals in cooperation with partner universities.

Dr. Esfandiar Burman is an assistant professor at The Bartlett School of Architecture in the University College London (UCL). He is currently module leader for Environmentally Responsible Building Systems at the Master Course in Engineering and Architectural Design. Dr. Burman has extensive experience in teaching and research in the field of Urban Sustainability and Resilience, Environmental Building Design, and Advance Building Performance Assessment. His portfolio includes more than 30 scientific publications on these areas of knowledge. Throughout the last year Dr. Burman has been collaborating with professor Auer´s Chair in developing joint European project proposals.
