EVENT TITLE:

Intensive programmes for higher education learners:

“Romanian applied study on rural heritage sustainable revitalization methodology approaching inter-,multi- and trans- disciplinarily of build culture aiming to promote social inclusion for disadvantage and remote communities.”

18-27.05.2019

LOCATION: Sfistofca, Tulcea, Romania

The Intensive programmes for higher education learners in Romania are the 6th Learning/Teaching/Training activities of VVITA Project, an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for higher education (KA2) between UAUIM, UNICT & NTNU, that raises question of European high education and underlines thematic approach of complexity on rural heritage conditions emergencies, actual chances and challenges where traditional division of disciplines are outdated. Participant universities have different approaches and profiles offering diversity in the project; cooperation sets up creativity and discipline interference based on identity. Engineer field disciplines focus on technical-economics aspects and architecture ones on architectural design and aesthetic approach, while urbanism disciplines focus on territorial developments and cultural landscape. These learning, teaching and training activities equip students and teachers with competences, knowledge and skills of interdisciplinary interaction in order to successfully cope with contemporary challenges of sustainable and inclusive strategies to vitalize heritage villages through innovative technologies. In the same time, they encourage the cooperation between disciplines, cities and countries supporting the mobility and comprehensive interaction.

EVENT TITLE: Short-term joint staff training events

The Short-term joint staff training event is the 1st Learning/Teaching/Training activities of VVITA Project, an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for higher education (KA2) between UAUIM, UNICT & NTNU, that raises question of European high education and underlines thematic approach of complexity on rural heritage conditions emergencies, actual chances and challenges where traditional division of disciplines are outdated. Participant universities have different approaches and profiles offering diversity in the project; cooperation sets up creativity and discipline interference based on identity. Engineer field disciplines focus on technical-economics aspects and architecture ones on architectural design and aesthetic approach, while urbanism disciplines focus on territorial developments and cultural landscape. For the need of complexity approach on the topic, project offers integrate vision usually neglected through apart disciplines aiming strengthening architectural curricula and new teaching and learning adapted to new societal and professional setups. The selection will consider teachers from the partner institutions with cross-disciplines related to the heritage villages vitalization, building sustainability, architecture/engineer, rural heritage, risk assessment, building technologies, cultural landscape, urbanism, energy efficiency, cultural heritage, aesthetic architecture, building structure, Net Zero Energy Building, etc.

Participation at the SHARE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Tuesday, 7 of November, JW Marriott Grand Hotel, Bucharest

Nominated Project in WOOD REINVENTED Section

Study: ”The Fishermen's Shelter”

The fishermen’s shelters and traditional buildings, specific to the Danube Delta, were located in isolated areas, away from the villages’ heart serving as a home during the fishing seasons. This study is about an architectural solution which will provide shelter and housing for 6-12 fishermen, and is adaptable for more sites in the Danube Delta.

The concept has started from the basic function (housing) and adopts the typology of the traditional plan used in the Danube Delta, including the porch and the space for socialization.

The structure is entirely made of timber, starting with the pilots’ foundation, the structure of the walls, terrace, and roof, and ending with the reed cover and the insulating panels from straw.

This project is modular, using row materials, and is easily adaptable for different locations. It is fully recyclable and re-usable after the end of its life cycle. We are not using concrete or other hard-to-recycle materials.

The house is energy efficient, the architectural concept utilizes passive methods, such as orientation, shape, configuration, efficiently used natural insulation, intermediate space, and active methods, sensibly using the resources, such as solar and photovoltaic panels, pellet heating system (uses dried straw – usually fired in the Danube Delta for plant regeneration), as well as natural filters and purification systems.

This solution intends to be a good example of flagship that can be multiplied for the future ecological and eco-low-tourism of the Danube Delta, where locals should rationally manage both resources and environment, as well as tourism and mobility on the Delta channels.
