Laboratory of Integrated Performance in Design
Our work involves different perspectives and methods, ranging from the human scale to the building and even urban scale, based on both simulations and experimental work. We aim to bring new models, methods, metrics, decision support platforms and physical demonstrators, to enrich the designer’s toolset and adopt a holistic and integrated approach in architecture.
Ensuring comfort while promoting human wellbeing are part of a satisfying occupant experience in buildings, but must remain bounded by energy and material efficiency. LIPID’s research activities focus on ways to fulfill - at minimum and beyond- building users’ physiological and emotional needs accounting for the resources we have available by taking four main perspectives: Health, Comfort, Perception and Energy.
