21. Improving the Sustainability Performance of Building Materials: An Approach from Life Cycle Thinking
Sammanfattning : The construction industry is expected to play a vital role in meeting the global societal challenge of ensuring sustainable development. Due to the increasing importance of the embodied impact of materials, this thesis investigates how the sustainability performance of building materials can be improved. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The focus of building design is increasingly moving towards considering performance as a driver, which can especially be seen in the realm of sustainable or green building design due to the advent of ambitious goals regarding energy consumption and emissions. Accounting for these concerns is an important target of the building design process, where there is a potential to make valuable contributions. LÄS MER
23. High-Performance Building Design and Decision-Making Support for Architects in the Early Design Phases
Sammanfattning : Based on the design decision making process from an architect’s point of view, a related literature review, theoretical analyses, and inductive inferences, this thesis proposes a new interpretation of high-performance building (HPB), translates/maps criteria issues related to building environmental assessment (BEA) tools for key design decision making elements, and identifies sources of inspiration for HPB designs. This thesis intends to propose an integrated conceptual model for the design of HPBs to provide direct knowledge-based decision making support to architects in the early design phase. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the production of liturgical textiles in five Swedish studios between 1880 and 1930. It is based on a survey of what was delivered to and preserved in the buildings of the Church of Sweden, more than 4,000 recorded objects. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The present global environmental condition is a consequence of the increasing consumption of natural resources whose depletion exceeds what is physically possible to sustain in the long term. The construction sector is a considerable contributor to this resource depletion and sustainability is adopted in the form of the theory of ecological modernization. LÄS MER
