Conference: Housing Reloaded
DATE: 27/4/2017
On 27th April 2017, Franz Graf and Giulia Marino presented the conference Housing Reloaded at Victor Bourgeois Auditorium, Brussels, Belgium.

"Estimated a priori as very vulnerable from the point of view of building physics, the heritage of the "large scale" post 1945 is now the subject of important "energy renovations", which rarely bend to the intrinsic qualities of the object constructed, and which are also extremely expensive.

This current practice deserves to be re-examined. A new strategy that balances environmental and economic footprints, while preserving this rich and heterogeneous heritage, which means the "face" of our cities, is essential."
