Events: Architecture and Civil Engineering, Arkitektur, Bygg- och miljöteknik events at Chalmers University of TechnologyTue, 25 Sep 2018 11:49:58 +0200! Sustainable 2018<p></p><p>​All students at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology are welcome to Act! Sustainable – an inspiration week to act for sustainability.</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">From 24th to 28th of September, the <a href="">Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development</a>, GMV, in collaboration with other actors at the universities, arrange an exciting week to inspire and deepen students’ knowledge about different sustainability issues. This year’s theme is <strong>“Act for Sustainable Development”</strong> and encourages us to take action towards creating a better society. During the week, numerous activities will be organized in Gothenburg, mainly at the universities’ campus areas. Students can participate in everything from movie screenings, workshops, lectures, field trips and mingle activities. From May and onwards, you can stay updated on our website <a href=""></a> to see the program. Don’t forget to follow our <a href="">Facebook page</a> for more updates!</span><div><br /></div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">We are looking for co-organizers! </h2> <div>Would you, your association, institution, union or organization like to participate during Act! Sustainable? We are now looking for co-organizers that want to arrange an activity during the Act! week. During previous years, Act! has had 400 student participants from University of Gothenburg and Chalmers. We would like to offer a context in which you can bring forward your sustainability related issues and passions together with other co-organizers, students, researchers and inspirational speakers. As the main organizer, GMV is responsible for coordination and communication in the program, on our website and social media. If you would like to arrange an activity, please send the information below to project manager <a href="">​</a> <strong>no later than June 1st.</strong></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Background information</div> <div><span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Date, time and place</div> <div><span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Important links</div> <div><span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Contact person</div> <div><span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Graphic material and images</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Please note the dates, add it to your calendars and spread this information to colleagues, students and others who you believe should know about the Act! week.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>If you have any questions, please send them to project manager Linnéa Lundmark at <a href=""></a> or call at 0733-873 173.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>More information will be updated at <a href=""></a> and<a href=""></a> </div> <div><br /></div> <div>See you at Act!

The speakers present their own research and practice in relation to the conducted workshops, all relating to the role of the digital within architecture in the near future. The presentations are concluded with a panel with all speakers, moderated by Jonas Runberger from the Chalmers ACE faculty and the Architecture &amp; Computation Research Group.</p><div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">13.00 - 13.45 | RotoForm - On lightweight casts and dynamic formwork</span><div>Samim Mehdizadeh, Architect, Research Fellow, Digital Design Unit (DDU) in Darmstadt.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>14.00 - 14.45 | Machine Learning Methods In Design</div> <div>Jaime de Miguel, Architect, PhD candidate in Computer Science &amp; AI, University of Seville</div> <div>Maria Eugenia Villafañe, Architect focusing on structural engineering, Atelier One</div> <div><br /></div> <div>15.00 - 15.45 | Data-driven Design for Fabrication</div> <div>Eva Magnisali, architect engineer, Research Associate, Fabrication Lab at the University of Westminster</div> <div>Ed Tibuzzi, Engineer, Designer and Researcher,® AKTII</div> <div><br /></div> <div>16.00 - 16.30 | Concluding discussion</div> <div>Chaired by: Jonas Runberger, Chalmers ACE, the Architecture &amp; Computation Research Group</div> </div> Architecture - Experiencing the Delft approach to Studio Tutorials<p>SB-S393, seminar room,</p><p>​Kia Bengtsson Ekström, the Head of the Architecture Program,  invited Luc Willekens, of the TU Delft School of Architcture, to facilitate a seminar on architectural education.

Urbanization leads, however, not only to urban growth, but also produces peri-urban spaces. The most dominant mode of peri-urbanization is the incremental development of self-built settlement sites engulfing former villages at the outskirts of GAMA.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In her talk, Lara Esther Bartels offers an analysis of uneven processes of this peri-urbanization mode by examining land and water relations and practices as well as the role of the middle classes in the construction of self-built settlements.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href=";IssueId=338495ef-2e27-4892-a925-a1b118d9e999">More information and registration &gt;&gt;</a></div>,-Ekaterina-Sokolova.aspx,-Ekaterina-Sokolova.aspxDocent lecture, Ekaterina Sokolova, ACE<p>SB-S393, seminar room,</p><p>​Modelling-based solutions for water quality challenges.</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Water pollution is an increasing problem globally, and the absence of safe drinking water is a major problem for human health. Our water sources are polluted by pathogenic microorganisms as well as inorganic and organic compounds, and face the challenges of antimicrobial resistance, emerging pollutants, and climate change. Wastewater discharges as well as agricultural and urban runoff are major sources for many of the pollutants. To assess the impact of different pollution sources and describe the water quality in water sources, I use water quality models. In my research, the combination of modelling, measurements, risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis provides decision support for the prioritisation of possible mitigation measures. The overall aim is to facilitate sustainable management of water systems. </span><div><br /></div> <div>For the after mingle in pentry SB-K387, no registration is necessary.</div> <div><br /></div> Ag-Ukrikul 90% Seminar: From Landscape to Eatscape: Notes on Livable City Making<p>SB-K582, meeting room,</p><p></p>​O<span style="background-color:initial">pponent: Professor of the Practice Anna-Johanna Klasander </span><div>Examiner: Professor Fredrik Nilsson</div> <div>Main supervisor: Professor Maria Nyström</div> <div>Co-supervisor: PhD Marie Strid </div> <div><br /></div> <div>The text is available by sending an e-mail to Chotima <a href=""></a></div> <div><br /></div> Sustainability Day 2018<p>Campus Johanneberg, mostly at Chalmers conference centre, Student Union Building</p><p>​Chalmers Sustainability Day is back - Tuesday 23 October 2018.
