RESEARCH AND TEACHING IN THE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FIELD

During my 2-years work experience at Aalborg University, I had the opportunity to work on different research projects as well as be involved in the teaching of graduate students at Master level.

DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR OVERHEATING CONTROL IN SUMMER The first research project I have been involved in was a company funded project on the development of design guidelines for overheating control by solar shading and natural ventilation in both new and renovated residential buildings. In this project, I have been involved in several tasks, among which, performing comprehensive investigation of building thermal conditions by Energy+ simulations of building thermal performance in order to provide guidelines on how to avoid overheating in new and renovated homes while managing the heating consumption and to develop a simplified method for assessing the handling of the solar load, the need for cooling with outdoor air and the size of the window area needed to ensure thermal comfort at room or dwelling level.

The second main project I have participated to was an EU funded research project where I have analyzed indoor environmental performance and user behavior based on data collection of indoor environmental parameters and user actions on a 15 minute basis in every room of 17 apartments for more than a year. In this project, I have contributed to the definition and analysis of new performance indicators for the evaluation of energy and indoor environmental performance.

RESEARCH AND CONSULTING IN THE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FIELD

During my Master in Civil Engineering, I had the opportunity to work as an intern in a sustainability consulting company (first year of Master) and in the Civil Engineering Department of Aalborg University (Denmark) as part of my research initiation project (Master thesis).

AUTOMATED ROOF WINDOW SYSTEM FOR OVERHEATING CONTROL IN SUMMER At the end of my Master in Civil Engineering and Urban Planning, I had the opportunity to spend 5 months in the Civil Engineering Department of Aalborg University (Denmark). This first experience abroad and in an international research environment was an enriching and formative experience. During my stay, I assisted a PhD student on his research project, the study of automated roof window control system to address overheating issues during the peak summer period in new or renovated houses in Denmark. The study focused on 2 cases study, a new single-family house and an office building, where overheating problems had been reported but I mostly worked on the house case. I worked on different missions among which the technical assistance to companies in charge of the installation of the system especially recommendations regarding the measurement campaign strategy. It’s after visiting the house and meeting the family that I could give recommendations on which and how many windows to control, where to place the

CONSULTING IN SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AT BUILDING AND URBAN SCALE At the end of my first year of Master in Civil Engineering, I had the opportunity to work as an intern in a sustainability consulting company called TRIBU (Lyon, France) for 4 months. TRIBU (Techniques, Researches, Innovations at Building and Urban scales) is specialized in sustainable development approach applied at building and urban scales. TRIBU is a trans-disciplinary company with engineers, architects, urban planners and building experts (climate, energy, comfort, materials, waste management…) and is involved in project management missions as well as consulting missions to contracting authorities and urban planning missions within the sustainability field. This first experience in a sustainability consulting company was an opportunity for me to take advantage of both my architectural and engineering skills, furthermore in the area of sustainable design, of particular interest to me. I had the opportunity to work on two main projects, a contest for a sport complex and a contest for a student residence project renovation. In both projects, I took part in the skecthing phase and had the opportunity to experience in a professional context the collaborative design process between architects and engineers. I carried out various missions

sensors but also on the planning of the measurement campaign. I also worked on the dynamic thermal simulation of the house on the Design Builder software and built the model as realistically as possible based on information I collected during the interviews I had with the family during the visit of the house (occupancy profiles, user behavior, systems, windows, shading…). The purpose of the simulations was to evaluate the cooling needs and the overheating risk and develop and test appropriate window control strategies. In parallel, I also processed some of the data collected by the sensors that were installed in the house in order to evaluate the level of comfort (overtemperatures, air quality…).

such as site analysis, calculations of bioclimatic indicators, elaboration of guidelines regarding the sustainable design at urban and building scales, daylight studies and dynamic thermal simulations. I took part in the entire process from building the model to optimizing the technical solutions (shading devices, night cooling, internal loads management…) in order to reduce the heating needs and satisfy the requirements for summer comfort. But I have also been involved more punctually in other projects, performing missions such as sunlight studies, energy consumption and global cost calculations, measurements campaigns, follow ups on equipment quality, research (circular economy, “urban oasis”), sites and construction sites visits…

THE ESPLANADE OF POSSIBILITIES

Year • Master thesis Topic • Architectural Ambiances and Constructive Cultures Semester coordinator • Olivier Balaÿ Group • Pierre Barbet & Camille De Gaulmyn

For my master thesis, I chose a topic which objective was to carry out integrated architectural design of today’s housing combining aesthetic, spatial, social, functional, logistical and technical aspects of sustainable architecture. To face this challenge, we were surrounded by a trans-disciplinary team composed of architects, engineers, urbans planners, economists and acousticians in order to work in the most integrated way possible. With Camille and Pierre, we chose to work on a site located in the Esplanade neighborhood in the north-west of the city of Grenoble in the south-east of France. The site is constrained by several strong and structuring elements which led us to adopt a very contextualized approach. Among these, the national road, the Chartreuse massif and the Isère river. However, these major structuring elements contribute to the isolation of the neighborhood from the rest of the city and

the deteriorating neighborhood decrease even more the current quality of life of its inhabitants. Our main intention was then to recreate a pleasant neighborhood to live in, a place generating happiness and pride from its inhabitants in line with the social, economic and environmental constraints of the site. To achieve this goal, we worked at both urban and building level. At urban level, it resulted in reconnecting the site to its natural environement and the city, offering a programmatic diversity and adopting a bioclimatic approach. At the building scale, we prioritized the comfort of its inhabitants by focusing on all aspects of comfort (thermal, visual, acoustic, atmospheric) but also on user related issues (intimacy, appropriation...),materiality, construction and energy efficiency.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL BUILDING

Year • First year of master Topic • Design to build, ethic and technic Semester coordinator • Emmanuel Ritz Group • Hannin Alnimri, Quentin Bourguignon, Guillaume Devie

The conference room placed ontop of the youth center was designed as a city-wide facility and acts as a signal visible regardless of where the audience come from whereas the youth center is more a neighborhood facility. Its location on the ground floor and closeby the park make it accessible and invites visitors to enter.

The program includes different facilities (youth center, parking, conference room and students housing) for a total surface area between 7000 and 8000 m2. At urban level, the idea was that the building would ensure the link between the Saône (river) and the train tracks. The car silo, located in the train tracks’ side benefit from a strategic access by car and its function adapts more easily with the constraints on this side. Both youth center and conference room benefit from a central location in the neighborhood.

We worked more into detail with the student residence, which we placed above the ground to recreate a student microcosm in height. From there the students don’t disturb the neighborhood and can contemplate the floods of the river just under their rooms. Common spaces participate to create architectural events on the facades. Some of them appears as extrusion of the inhabited volume, creating holes in the wooden and metal double skin facade and points of view to the surroundings.

MODULAR ARCHITECTURE IN WOOD AND STEEL

Year • First year of master Topic • Architectural Ambiances and Constructive Cultures Semester coordinator • Rémi Mouterde Group • 6 students from the architecture school of Lyon (ENSAL) and 5 students from the architecture school of Grenoble (ENSAG)

This work of introduction to the techniques of machining and assembly of wood and steel materials was done in collaboration with another architecture school and a workshop area nearby Lyon (France). There, we built in one week a temporary village in 1:1 scale for students and researchers made of differents modules (bedrooms, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and toilets).

free space to dance or host common activities, we worked with a wall/floor-integrated furniture that could be unfolded at any time to offer an adaptable number of tables and benches. The door could also fully open and offer various resting spots. Moreover, the facades were made of adjustable wooden shutters for the users to adapt according to the level of comfort desired.

Within a team of 11 students, we worked more specifically on the dining room module where we decided to implement different systems to make the space flexible according to time of the day and seasons. So that the dining room could easily be turned into a

This experience taught me a lot about wood and steel and especially the precision and rigor required to assemble such matérials but also about inter-school collaboration, community living and team work, which, according to me, always greatly enrich the project.
