Establishing Smart and Resilient Lunar Habitats

Colloquium
Establishing Smart and Resilient Lunar Habitats

The creation of safe and comfortable habitations is one of humankind’s oldest activities. Millennia of trials have brought the design and operation of habitats on Earth to a high degree of sophistication. However, as we consider moving out into Space, we will encounter challenges related to the harsh and unknown conditions that are present in this environment. These challenges will impede safety and ...

Last-glacial-cycle glacier erosion potential in the Alps

Seminar
Last-glacial-cycle glacier erosion potential in the Alps

Ancient Alpine glaciers have carved a fascinating landscape of piedmont lakes, glacial valleys, and mountain cirques. Using a previous ice flow simulation, we show that the glacier erosion potential has constantly evolved and moved to different parts of the Alps. Larger glaciers do not necessarily cause more rapid erosion. Instead, glacier erosion is modelled to slow down during glacier advance and peak during phases ...

Building information is currently not treated as something valuable beyond its immediate scope of application. One of the reasons for this is the lack of a long term value proposition and/or clear pathways for generating revenue using building data. As a result, valuable building information is unavailable to interested individuals and data analytic companies. In order to monetise building data, it has to be first systematically generated or collected (e.g., during the construction phase of a building). Furthermore, building data must be maintained, curated and regularly updated to remain relevant and up-to-date as time passes. All this incurs costs and companies may not see the point of doing so beyond what is needed to achieve their immediate tasks at hand. Among other potential use-cases for building data assets, they may provide information about building components and their materials to entities that specialise in mining and recycling building materials, thus contributing to a circular building materials economy. Pathways for generating revenue would provide the necessary incentives to maintain and update data until the building is demolished (and possibly beyond). We believe that building data assets have a crucial role to play in the context of sustainable material flows in circular future cities. To this end we use tokenised data assets on a Blockchain as a tool to connect building owners with the consumers of building information, coordinate the activities of the built ecosystem and at the same time, maintain the economic incentives required to keep the wheels running

It is well known that the design of buildings and urban environments has a strong influence on our emotional state and experience. Urban places, in particular, are also typically experienced in various levels of human occupancy – depending on the time of day, places from main streets to parks, can be almost empty or bustling with pedestrians, patrons, residents and visitors. How does the presence of other people influence our subjective experience of places? Does the design of urban environments moderate the effects of social presence? Using multiple measurement of human emotions drawing from environmental psychology and neuroscience, we begin to understand how design and presence of people jointly modulate our experiences in cities. In this talk, I will present the conceptual background and findings from recent and ongoing work done as part of the FCL2 Cognition Perception and Behaviour in Urban Environments project and more recently the IntraCREATE SEED project ‘NICE’, and how this can contribute to the planning of future urban developments.
