|Scope of the research team|
The design of living spaces for complex, sustainable development requires an examination of the whole life cycle of the individual. A healthy physical environment requires space and comfort levels that vary throughout the human life cycle. Pressures of economics and efficiency, which are linked with the drive for the generation of profit, are dominant in modern economies. The role, opportunities and interests of the individual must be given special attention, and its impact must be balanced against profit.
Ageing and changes in life expectancy are causing increasingly drastic environmental changes. A long-term, integrated solution requires the creation of measurable values, resulting in sustainable and innovative solutions to the challenges we face. In the defining/re-defining of our living spaces, the optimization of the built volume, the horizontal dimension, cost efficiency and the creation of healthy living spaces are the primary objectives.
Virtual simulations can be a valuable tool used to address these issues, where parameterized comfort can be explored and represented using smart tools, for example, by mapping and simulating prefabricated elements, that are becoming increasingly important, that contribute to the increased comfort and health in our buildings, objects, and devices. Systematic thinking and measured feedback are needed to explore challenges to find sustainable norms in morality, economy, and health.
Responsible and efficient design can create an environmental symbiosis where the value of comfort in the built space: "well-being" can be measured. Sustainable development requires a micro approach to safeguarding human health, safety, and well-being. The principle should be the creation of a safe living space, an allergy-free environment.
|Research objectives of the research team|
Our long-term goal is applied research, creating products, and living spaces that have a positive impact on human health and disease prevention. The outcome is mass production and coordination, data provision and optimization. Investigating the impact on the built environment, analyzing impacts, values, and predicting impacts. Utilization of research results in education, preparation of specializations, preparation of teaching materials, and writing doctoral dissertations. Within the Biomedical Engineering field, the research team focuses on prevention to reduce the health risks associated with the built environment (architectural and interior spaces) and humans.
The impact of extended periods spent in enclosed spaces on human health, comfort and efficiency is within the scope of the research team. A multidimensional analysis of comfort perception, leading to complex results on the individualizable aspect of well-being perception. This analysis is fed back into service development and product design in response to problems detectable by the parameterized values.
