michael and thank you paul knows uh what is fantastic opportunity to
work together because it's a very much a working in an environment that it's useful for us because we're
anyway the other at the beginning of a of a of a journey in a project which
is the connected to i. so what what what's taking place here um so it's
also been a privilege to work with the possible use non and and also be
i'm a i'm not sure what the victim or been a
fishery of their allows jess off the former super yeah
in having received the uh uh actual financial support for this so that it's very important
to us because we in the speech then have no money as you know ah
well in this case we have no money because it's a it direct project
uh and into rick most intimate projects except for one which is the
alpine valley lake constance region the uh in the upper rhine
um we we don't get funds from the you like switzerland uh
mostly you programs a part to us for different reasons
it's it's an it's because of the um inhumane immigration policy for us is because
we don't give the you any money so they don't give us money that
in this case we have partners though we can take part and i think it's important to know that to understand
the logic of the project the financial dimensional but we're partners we are
a major partner in this into rick project which looks at
the um comment your keen sustainable build environment
assessment framework that's been established for buildings
but this is not being applied to spatial
settings settlements communities regions cities
i'm in a prototype um a a framework for the alpine region
and so this project cars s. pops and with in that project
uh we run a a initiative called atlas which is called
up and territorial love lust assessment system we
attempt to compare and contrast and map
the various indicators in criteria that being to being developed in the sense pops project
on a g. s. platform linked to to database so is and i'm not sure that that's it um
i am what i wanna do just very quickly go through a smorgasbord
that's the sweets colour the think what to use some of uh
uh and postcards from sustainability issues in the up and regions
and in the second half quickly highlight uh the the thinking of a baptist project uh where
it's heading now and then i'll look forward to your feedback and so steamed got
um this is a listing stein today well not today eighteen
thirty three ah in the minds off the first
um but he looks at the painting on his wall um this
is of course a utopian vision this is eighteen thirty three
listen stan look like there's from box or balls across the rhine
but this is your ah in the throes of the industrial revolution this is not what
thing that looked like what germany or or the rest of your does
the blasted out one region and that's what it looks like today
well there's austria but it it can get get a for the up closer to the round valley but this
is a s. a a region which just didn't uh undergoing dramatic change sent it to thirty three
um and the regional struggling like so many others between
the traditionally and is steamed urban cores and images of of of of our
work and the and the and the issues and challenges of right
force a few insane um transpose system points
or a a tube regulated or room
development process uh this is our valley and this is a kind of a
prestige of the future region outline um uh of the of the generic up and region but
it i'll i'll at all goes down a centrally
to the same on the line sustainability
issues um that we have to keep in the forefront of all mines
in order to maintain a sense of priority when it comes to the various
sustainability aims a criteria what's the fundamental what's the ultimate underlying one
and here we have ninety five percent of global transmit energy being
all based ninety percent of industry production we have a a
possibly a pollution bill in europe of a hundred billion you
rooms health costs due to fossil fuel we've got to
um blowout at four hundred parts per million achieved last yeah
uh i'm the overseer to enact this we we got the general agreement that the
old goals of one and fifty parts per million and two degrees celsius
that should be abandoned ends the the parisian common agreement not to for the agree
on that because they want and a chart knows that already point eight degrees
we saw the stabilisation of the group likewise we and then we also know for ten years already
that even if you believe in two degrees that foreign fifty parts per million is
too much to aim at because we've got the over fifty percent risk
of over shooting the two degrees and ends this new focus on
less um it's more one point five degrees add to this
i'm a phenomenon which is the feedback of melting karma frost
observed in siberia but also in the ops yep so off guessing
in major ways as the melting from a first line rises
and so uh astrophysicist say worst case was case temperature
increase on that maybe two hundred fifty degrees
that that's the right from uh from the state of the venus which is the same size as
but but much closer to the sounds of use subtract distance to get to one fifty
cooler and use that's the good news that means um we have
a sensible target or not for non fifty or three hundred fifty of to an eight
because we we knew this was relatively stable peak office you two considerations for
um teensy is uh that that of course means forty percent below the current that um that also
means that the action horizons has to be relatively short we can't wait for twenty fifty because
we know we all know when we look which others in it into a g. s. blue eyes
that if the targets twenty fifty we start to think about it in twenty forty nine
so a hundred percent carbon emissions free energy that includes everything except window
um it's a kind of a countries you scenic one on without which we
i can't even begin to talk about sustainability that's a fundamental premise then
we can start out to discuss how we stable as things
because we have to have emissions reductions one hundred and two hundred and forty percent
that means we have to reduce below the current level to get back to three fifty or two eight
and we can do that we have done a model a g. i. s. based model for the up and
or quite as high foothill alpine region of the
lake constance area uh which has a
uh austria germany uh switzerland and uh the station as a as a uh as as
members it's a pretty um place and show you spend some time to it
it's a industrial region that's also region of a historical significance
i'm off from by diversity it's uh also an interesting
collection of cities and towns with very interesting
a cultural traditions we've done the g. s. based model off the region as an energy system
and try to find out by when and how and under
what circumstances once it could achieve what level of
self says sufficiency in this kit best case in
decisions by twenty fifty we can achieve forty
percent so my energy self sufficiency the good news is that by twenty thirty already
sony but twenty fifty we can achieve a full supplying electricity in the speech just from
local sources had the good that's a good news because we can use the
surplus in uh and and so low wind and hydro power based electricity that's
available from twenty thirty to store in out of gas or in
in other means or convert directly into thermal heat to a point that we can achieve that by twenty fifty fall
when over energy supply for thermal he had mobility if
we convert be cough lead to electric drive just
and even better news is that if we do basic things like our forefathers and mothers did it uh
better agriculture but uh what are management forestry and so forth we can get below
i'm a cop and neutrality we can begin to sequester c. or two
from the apples here we go down um negative about problem
balance but twenty fifty in this meeting it's quite quite doable with
current actually available and financially not only feasible but rewarding
measures playing a jobs already but twenty twenty to fifty three hundred
saving ten minute ten dealing in a euros in the twenty forty to
fifty time frame a when compared to current energy system investments
uh and so what do do that just means converting our agriculture
from this to that that's that will use an example for
so cold climate region or climate landscape a vineyard but
also focusing on the building and materials industry
moving to would moving to carbon moving to a bar chart a mixed into cement
to a way from some uncertainty and and and finding new ways of
using the enormous him an investment in the ah great
and construction off infrastructure to stork atlas record
no that's a very relevant in the up envision because we have observed this rise in these uh quote
c. to neutral zone that so that this is what's left of major course you to sink areas
uh below that uh the ops are off gassing me thing
uh as the temperature rises the purpose is not
and so the glacial melting is uh is tragic put the real tragedy is of course the
remote for smelting and and um within release through the trying of a woman's and so
um so what about people what about our culture shock but about the we we
interact with the on view of our architect that essentially to uh um
two views on on the world one is a critical view or which says look we've got
let's alps famous well we just what francis so here's an example nineteen
eighty six the construction of a new arm was or what
uh a lot plan said well you know it very well uh and
then twenty sixteen and has a mushroom looked it's become a a
larger town winter sports area but that's not the actual ecological damage
has occurred be logged on a collateral damage is in the
to rain where what tense being currently could convert it
into tanks to store water to make artificial snow
to maintain the real estate investment that's hang at the foothills
and this uh interesting phenomenon easy to such an
extent through the alps lehigh helps that
that artificially she know here is exceed in surface area actually
called surely do productive that in the alps today
so we've got this um extraordinary work of maintaining what i
call not a virtual reality but the real virtual reality
sort of a green off a time that has passed us by
and you see that cost the ops in all countries in bavaria this
product before construction and does palm like as i say after destruction
and this is the process
uh and of course the process itself is very damaging is that what it does to them
what a resume and so forth now hold you as i you sitting
down especially the architects this is what also legislation has brought forth
a settlement designed around the illusion off a ski slope
the ski slope marches to the land like a river and the riverfront property
is sold as a premium as a kind of a pastiche in june
uh investment property of course almost to times of the year looks like this
and that's what i was solicitations but for now this is the one side of the
korean of what's currently being cushion the ops and i mean have really pushed
i'm in universities in the planning a institutions and government
yeah but that's the other side is a kind of a hopeful non question
of many in increasing numbers of committees which trying to preserve within the yeah um
ability uh the so called forbidden zone the natural zone surrounding non
ski areas but hiking years for winter and summer sport
like this uh the log out pine a region and its its base is nothing with the may very dramatic
but it's usually successful i'm not very ambitious architectures you
could see but financially successful you see me
i'm driving forward a two courses and
eight to retire we that's not me but it looks like there's like i looked at this mosaic
well maybe that is a future for me after uh_huh uh_huh oh i looks wonderful doesn't it
so um but the seaside is that this pretty picture
of course a stance was something much more
fundamentally yeah there's a the want to re she whatever
machine beset by diversity regime and energy regime is
fundamental also to live in the alps and and use a map of the same
up there should be before the rise income of us but he see that
seven major uh open cities um you know that's lee on as jean
yves uh the apps eureka munich um at the very and
uh the uh not on the new for loop yeah no and
milan and you have four also what's that yeah um
really know exactly so what do they have in common with all the
other major towns to heavily dependent on open water flows the health
reggie water freezing and several of them have a law um see
all and chantal are already know what the crisis stick to
of not being able to achieve uh what tracks and so that
they you see this important um move and and that's being
practised by our that's in the open area that that look
at the sort of attraction of a biology organic
or should that goes apples or comments but also kind of commitment to a cultural hum
an architectural you know a call so that expresses that and holds it here
in the communities and house also two chairs so um to move to
the atlas project but just sort of trying to understand is um
dilemma in the context of the the cesspool ups project
the common u. p. insisted the the assisted um
sustainable build environment project looking at regional and territorial development
uh understanding that conduct classes so sustainability frameworks
available for the good environment already
um and applying it uh in a in a collaborative project across all seven
countries and say what are people doing now to measure the sustainability
how the does compare how they could how did clark could
be used as process to improve their local territorial just
a billy goat you and how can we learn from the efforts to create a kind of a hand alpine
understanding of how people understand the sustainability
goals criteria and success um indicate
um i'll i'll industries i mean we are in industry uh been do
development building architectural landscape infrastructure industry other indices of
much further along versus the scheme just
has organised itself already for some time in i
attempt at creating a great as a state not just a system attractive score
but and understanding of indicators that help them measure how well they perform
i'm out of self defence you know atlases sits sitting inside this
process as an as a as a project to to attempt
uh to connect the data that come in in a
usually reference fashion um and to do it um
um by holding the data on the one hand as geographically referenced uh
sets a but also then allowing a kind of a we
initially rudimentary and then hopefully more sophisticated yes based
mapping that's relevant for each territory whether the costa territory
dynamic it cost time that's web accessible updated
that don't steal the idea that because we have to be we yeah once the idea now
no but it's wonderful to be able to work together on this that i am just that phoebe because i think
be very important do not read do project or um
the past that have already been trodden but to
build on what's the and use framework that excess
um so we wanna be semantically carrier will
cost main issues you wanna be able to uh connect to the quantitative and qualitative data
uh we wanted to friendship indicators in performance criteria wanna harmon nice data
one uh uh do what is typical for many open
space uh projects but in this case to that
we don't look at the entire countries we don't look at the entire terrain we have picked
typical model territories that represent the region in a in a fashion for instance makes much done
it's like that because it's such a tiny country uh but we're connecting it
to a region in switzerland and camped on some common getting back
cycle region and then say well this is sort
of prosper total representation of swiss participation
and perhaps we can paint the entire country with that performance and i it it will
be a scientifically incorrect but at least to be able to make some assumptions um
but we can also then look at the territories that we actually study so
therefore regions in italy there's several reasons uh show the minimum in france
um and and austin so for them and so we can also
understand what to these regions value winded talk about sustainability
they all have different quite setting a sets of criteria can
compare them an absolute term compared in relative terms
comparing a performance um and measuring hopefully if this
works and if it if it does
maintain nipple a performance over time uh that would be a also quite important um
and then uh mel how timidly asked what was gonna use that ideally this would
be or done each country each charity is running workshops with the government
and the community representatives and their civic society organisations
to make sure that what is being done is actually relevant to
what people to also ideally this would be useful planning um
or reinforcing planning and then it's a volume two or some sort of second level
where we look at existing you data for the happen region and then
build those in or add them to it and perhaps related to socioeconomic data or two
um other statistical information that's relevant to the output kind state and
then i'm critically interested quality decide what a narratives stories um
um observations that can be built into this database
and images up in asking our partners
to take lots of photographs and uh which you reference photographs of
what they regard to be particularly good or bad examples of
sustainability in the particular home homeland so characters
and so we are fairly well advanced in raising funds
to this but we're still um i think crystal
uh in need of of of achieving the level required to carry this to uh the uh the
get at a good success but we have a start me so there's a kind of a funding or should we using
and then um there's a second dimension to this how do you how
do you make sure that this actually uh would be all gone
i'm run over by a possible does collapses no it's been it's been standing for long thirty is
and tested this is about the best example of a a a structure of this kind of thing um
how can it be automated how do we link it to the databases
and the performance environments it takes is in the various tractors automatically
so it updates itself so we starting with this up up up up up the scoop apartments
a man stands for link up a network data
they'll all on and off i am operate repositories of data and update them
and then if we apply a wood chain called link all day that
cloud principles which can connect through a set of routines to
actively manage data in government and private industry
and uh infrastructure organisations and statistical
um offices you can actually connect online and in real time to
the updating of this data in a way that you couldn't
infect maintain the date so that's the idea and these are
the participants see 'cause that's the standards for italian groups
ah directed of social cohesion social housing government of lombardi and so forth
austria two groups two groups of friends one group from germany munich
you know as it applied science and the slovenian organisation the institute and there
