ICT4S - Sustainable and smart: Rethinking what a smart home is

  1. 1. Sustainable and Smart: Rethinking What a Smart Home Is Maha  Salman Samar  Sabie Steve  Easterbrook Josie  Abate Smart  homes Technology   Passive  and  Active  Design Passive  and  Active  Occupants Vernacular  Architecture ICT  systems  
  2. 2. Home: Vernacular, Modern, or Smart
  3. 3. Smart  home  where  everything  is  controlled  by  high  technology What Do We Mean By A Smart Home high-­‐tech responsive  systems   computerized remote  control comfort,   convenience sustainable  
  4. 4. VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE PASSIVE VS ACTIVE DESIGN AND OCCUPANCY
  5. 5. VERNACULAR HOMES IN EXTREME CLIMATES: SMART, SUSTAINABLE,AND PASSIVE Organic  compact  urban  fabric  orientated  towards  prevailing  wind Shaded  alleys  for  sun  protection  providing  shadow  for  pedestrians
  6. 6. Courtyards  the  basic  design  element  in  traditional  houses  in  hot  climate INWARD DESIGN: COURTYARD HOUSE
  7. 7. Solid  elevations  with  small  openings  to  maximum  protection  from  sun SOLID WALLS AND SMALL OPENINGS
  8. 8. Coral-­stone  wallMountain-­stone  wallPalm-­frond  wall Plastered  wall Building  materials  used  in  walls  in  traditional  architecture LOCAL BUILDING MATERIALS
  9. 9. Natural  ventilation  through  upper  spaces  in  a  traditional  house  in  hot  climate NATURAL VENTILATION

  14. 14. PASSIVE SMART & SUSTAINABLE HOMES A  model  for  a  passive  energy  house  using  inward  courtyard  design
  15. 15. NATURAL VENTILATION Natural  ventilation  utilizing  inner  courtyard  and  wind  tower
  16. 16. RETHINKING THE CONCEPT OF SMART HOMES Ø Our vision for smart and sustainable architecture, based on vernacular practices, offers a new paradigm of passive design and active occupancy. Ø An approach that uses vernacular design principles in domestic buildings, reversing the usual assumption of active buildings and passive occupants. Ø This approach represents a radical shift in the way that ICT systems are used to create the smart home. Ø The role of ICT should be in the use of software tools to supplement human expertise, to improve design performance, and to educate dwellers on active occupancy. Ø A rational blend of passive and active design systems is therefore a favorable strategy to provide more sustainable homes, made smarter with judicious use of ICT.
