Arlind is an architect with experience in architectural and regenerative design, research and teaching at university level in Europe.
He holds a bachelor’s degree from Politecnico di Torino, an Erasmus Mundus Master in Building Information Modelling, a double Master of Science in Architecture from Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino, and is an Alta Scuola Politecnica alumni.
His work and research investigate the intersections of architecture, regenerative sustainability paradigm, use of BIM methodology and computational design, and circular economy in the built environment.
He is a doctoral researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm where he also contributes to the EU Horizon 2020 funded project ReCreate with the goal of reusing precast concrete for a circular economy. He also leads the development of expertise in Computational Design and Sustainability at ARCO Architecture Company, the largest design office in Finland, where he is responsible for exploring, developing, and integrating digital design and sustainability methods and proposals in the firm’s projects.
What to expect during the event
Different Sustainable Design methods and green building rating systems have been developed since the first definition of Sustainable Development of the Brundtland report. However, the Green Building movement and Sustainability as it is applied today in practice has not been enough to create well-being for people and nature within planetary boundaries. Climate Change, a Linear Economy and the high impact of the built environment on the planet require an immediate transformation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and IPCC climate goals.
This presentation aims to link the paradigms of Regenerative Design and Development to Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the design, construction and operation of the built environment. Regenerative Design holds the promise for shifting from the current practice focused on reducing environmental impacts and increasing efficiency towards designing buildings and cities that are regenerative, climate neutral, allowing human and natural systems to co-evolve. The role of Information Management and BIM is imperative from the early phase of a project, to make informed decisions, share the right level of information, simulate the performance, measure and improve the project, and ultimately design better buildings. New processes, tools and metrics are needed to reach higher and ambitious goals of Regeneration that can be realized with the benefits arising from innovation, digital transformation, information management and Industry 4.0.
