Modern brick facades mostly consist of homogeneous bricks. The Keller companies and HSLU researchers have developed a production process for bricks that opens up completely new design possibilities for architects. The joint Innosuisse research project arose from an award-winning thesis in the Master Design at HSLU.
While using a wood-burning stove, large amounts of particulate matter and ultrafine dust are released into living rooms. This is according to a citizen science project by Utrecht University. Researcher Fleur Froeling: "Although this study was carried out among a small group, we see that over three times more ultrafine dust is present in a home when the wood stove is on."
Focusing exclusively on new housing developments to counter the housing crisis is not sustainable, says David Kaufmann. His research group has been able to show that vulnerable persons are displaced to a much greater extent than previously thought in the Swiss canton of Zürich.
Modular homes that can be quickly adapted to a family situation, cleverly reusing rubble as building material for temporary housing, setting up emergency shelters in tent camps in such a way that communities can still be together. With such housing solutions and designs came 50 students from TU Delft after an education week on earthquake-resistant building and architecture after humanitarian disasters. The best ideas will be further developed into a 1:1 prototype of an earthquake-resistant temporary shelter for subsequent deployment in Turkey and Syria.
Research tracks geographic patterns of rising costs and declining housing affordability Frontline workers in essential public services play a critical role in our cities, but new research shows it's becoming more difficult for essential workers to live within reasonable commuting distance of their workplace.
Financial firms have moved in on Montreal's rental housing market New research indicates that a small percentage of financial landlords, like private equity firms and institutional investors, own four times more of Montreal's rental housing stock than was previously estimated.
