Architecture et Climat (EN)

Louvain-La-Neuve

The research group Architecture et Climat is part of the Faculty of Architecture, Architectural Engineering and Urbanism (LOCI) of the University of Louvain (UC Louvain).

Its mission is to propose and validate solutions of resilience and innovation, at the scale of the built environment, to respond to the global crises and challenges of today and tomorrow.

Based on a human-centred vision, these solutions lay at the intersection between the different disciplines and themes that can promote the transition towards a more resilient and sustainable architecture.

Our research aims to the development and application of methods and tools to analyse and sustain individual and collective comfort and well-being, the rational use of resources, and the quality and performance of the internal and external environment of buildings in their different contexts.
