ACTIVE HOUSE: Smart Nearly Zero Energy
Buildings
Authors: L. Feifer, M. Imperadori, G. Salvalai, A. Brambilla, F. Brunone
Abstract The book aims to provide an overview of the Active House (AH) vision intended
as a building design method “beyond” the passive approach, for buildings of the future that
will be more and more connected, smart and innovative. It is a different philosophical
design approach where buildings, new or renovated, can find balance with natural,
renewable energies and become “concentrators-distributors” of energies instead of be
consumers of resources. In fact, it is already working and the shown case studies give a
clear answer, which is different by climate conditions and building uses. The book is
composed by five chapters, providing information about fundamental aspects of innovations
towards resource-efficient buildings. The book demonstrates that a different design
approach from the status quo is possible and that a turning point, a change, has been set,
and the AH Alliance among designers, institutions, industries, academies is bringing new
fresh air in the world of construction.

The research project aims to identify innovative models of product, processes, and design (project), through wood-based
construction technologies, as additive solutions of urban and architectural, technological and energetic, seismic and structural
retrofit of the existing building stock. The proposal is to define a dynamic and active tool for the decision-making process to
evaluate the design choices at different stage of the construction process. The innovative approach consists of the integration of
this tool with a design optioneering methodology, which uses BIM processes and environments. This analysis would integrate the
validated Active House multi-purpose decision-support tool (the AH radar), enriching it with new specific wood-oriented and
retrofit-oriented criteria, in order to provide a comprehensive and holistic evaluation. In conclusion, the proposed tool could
represent an instrument to compare the simulated scenarios of each different design phase, with the real building, in its as-built
asset, and with the users’ influence, validating the project throughout its entire lifecycle.

POLITECNICO DI MILANO – Lecco Campus
Lecco, Italy
Brussels February 2018 | Marco Imperadori

The Lecco Campus
The Lecco Campus was founded in 1997
upon collaboration between the University
and territorial bodies to satisfy the need
for, in a highly industrial area with great
employment potential, a university campus
able to increase and drive collective growth
through research and technological
development.
The Lecco Campus offers a distinctly high
level of education that encourages
integration with the territory in terms of
both the uniqueness of the entrepreneurial
fabric and the campus’ own research
initiatives. The study programs,
consistently with the process of expansion
and diversification underway at the
Politecnico di Milano, have been devised to
offer a valuable and structured academic
opportunity, some of them unique to the
Politecnico, that is fully integrated in the
system and includes specific degree
programs and research projects.
Brussels February 2018 | Marco Imperadori
The new Lecco Campus
The new headquarters of Politecnico di Milano in Lecco, set for 2.000 students,
is located on the site of the old Civil Hospital and covers an area of 40,000 m2,
energy-efficient dedicated to teaching, research, workshops and services to
the area.
Brussels February 2018 | Marco Imperadori
The new University Campus
By the end of January 2012 the new University Campus of the Politecnico di Milano in
Lecco will be completed: 40,000 sqm of highly energy-efficient space destined to
teaching and research activities, scientific and cultural spaces, laboratories and offices
for technological transfers.
Brussels February 2018 | Marco Imperadori
The project involved both the creation of new structures and the recovery of
existing buildings.

This analysis would integrate the validated Active House multi-purpose decision-support tool (the AH radar), enriching it with new specific wood-oriented and retrofit-oriented criteria, in order to provide a comprehensive and holistic evaluation. In conclusion, the proposed tool could represent an instrument to compare the simulated scenarios of each different design phase, with the real building, in its as-built asset, and with the users’ influence, validating the project throughout its entire lifecycle. #Active House #Building construction systems #renovation strategies #BIM #decision-support tool

  • 34. The Lecco Campus The Lecco Campus was founded in 1997 upon collaboration between the University and territorial bodies to satisfy the need for, in a highly industrial area with great employment potential, a university campus able to increase and drive collective growth through research and technological development. The Lecco Campus offers a distinctly high level of education that encourages integration with the territory in terms of both the uniqueness of the entrepreneurial fabric and the campus’ own research initiatives. The study programs, consistently with the process of expansion and diversification underway at the Politecnico di Milano, have been devised to offer a valuable and structured academic opportunity, some of them unique to the Politecnico, that is fully integrated in the system and includes specific degree programs and research projects.
