    California academy of Science: Case study California academy of Science: Case study Presentation Transcript

    • CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES Case study: Sustainable Building Structure Gestión Medioambiental Professor: Auli Mellado Enric
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible • California Academy of sciences Building from late 1980 • Earthquake in 1989
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible • Renzo Piano • Universitat Politecnico de Milano • Renzo Piano Building Workshop Famous works: Centre Georges Pompidou, Parco del la Musica, Shard London Bridge, California Academy of Sciences, Kansai International Airport. Achievement: He is been appointed as SENATOR for life time for his outstanding cultural achievements by PRESIDENT OF ITALY.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Design & Idea of building Architect’s idea “ Was not only to make an Academy building but a building with a feel of Nature and Life in itself”

    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Materials Used California Academy of Sciences facts and figures: • 90% of all demolition materials were recycled • 32,000 tons of soil from foundation excavation applied to dune restoration projects in San Francisco • 95% of all steel used is from recycled sources • 15% fly ash (a recycled coal by-product), 35% slag in concrete • 50% of lumber harvested from Sustainable-yield forestry • 68% of insulation comes from recycled blue jeans • 30% less energy consumption than federal code requirement
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Green Roof • Largest green roof with an area of 2.5 acres(1 Hectare) • Approximately 1.7 million plants in the blanket of living roof. • The native plants will provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife & Biodiversity
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible • Bio degradable boxes used • Made from coconut husk pre arranged with plants . • 50,000 trays used with 6 inches of soil in it. • Approximately 1.7 million plants in the living roof which are native California plants.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Photovoltaic Cells • 60,000 Photovoltaic were used in canopy of building. • The multi-crystalline cells are the most energy efficient cells on the market, achieving at least 20% more efficiency compared to others. • supply almost 213,000 kWh of clean energy per year (at least 10% of the Academy’s energy needs). • And prevent the release of more than 405,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Insulation Material Used • Rather than using typical fiberglass or foam-based insulation, they choose to use thick cotton batting made from recycled blue jeans as insulation material. • This material provides an organic alternative to formaldehyde-laden insulation materials. • It is also safer to handle, it is more easier to work with and doesn't require installers to wear protective clothing or respirators..
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Heat & Humidity • An automated ventilation system takes advantage of the natural air currents to regulate the temperature of the building. • This building has been designed for passive ventilation.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Radiant Floor Heating • Tubes embedded in the concrete floor will carry hot water that warms the floor. • It will reduce the building’s energy need by an estimated 10% annually.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Warm air rises, and escapes through skylights ventilators
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Natural Lighting • The expansive, floor-to-ceiling walls of glass will enable 90% of the building's interior offices to use lighting from natural sources. • The skylights are strategically placed to allow natural sunlight to reach the living rainforest and coral reef. • Sensor system with automated light dimming facility to reduce energy usage.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible Water Efficiency • By absorbing rainwater, the new Academy’s living roof will prevent up to 3.6 million gallons of runoff from carrying pollutants into the ecosystem each year (about 98% of all storm water). • Saltwater for the aquarium will be piped in from the Pacific Ocean, minimizing the use of potable water for aquarium systems. • Reclaimed water from the City of San Francisco will be used to flush the toilets, reducing the use of potable water for wastewater conveyance by 90%. Transportation: • Local materials and products manufactured within 500 miles of the Academy will account for at least 20% of building materials. This reduces transportation impacts and supports the regional economy.
    • RenzoPiano’sArchitecture estructurasostenible California Academy was awarded “Platinum” LEEDS Certification LEEDS • LEEDS - Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design • Choice of Materials, Water and Energy, Living Roof, Indoor Environment in all respective, Project has been awarded 82 points .
