A Challenge for Low Energy Architecture and Urban Planning

In a world undergoing profound changes at energetic, environmental, social 
and economic levels, the work of the architect and urban designer has to 
evolve accordingly. Research and pilot experiments of the end of the 20th 
century have developed knowledge and techniques tending to a sustainable 
built environment. The concern today is to bring them into use through a 
multidisciplinary approach integrating technical and architectural aspects, 
social preoccupations and economic data. The rational use of energy and the 
implementation of renewable energies are highly necessary and require more 
intelligence and time for the project. An affordable level of comfort and 
well-being must be proposed as an alternative to the growing standard 
heating and air-conditioning: a comfort adapted to the seasons and a 
smoother transition between interior and exterior, beneficial to health and 
more appropriate to passive solutions and renewable energies. The 23rd PLEA 
conference in Geneva will emphasize the importance of considerations and 
experiences propitious for an intelligent, sustainable built environment, 
accessible to all.
