SPVH Workshop III: RENEWABLE ENERGY / RENEWABLE CULTURE / “Where can we go from here?”

MSU Zagreb, Školica, December 11th 2015

SOLAR POWERED VERNACULAR HOUSE 2013-2017

This third SPVH Workshop will continue the discussions on sustainable practices, technical solutions and socio-political strategies introduced during the SPVH Conference 2013 and Workshops I & II, investigating more ways in which the SPVH program content could help clarify the identity of the museum’s rooftop activities.

During this one-day workshop in the Školica educational space at the MSU, our speaker topics will include:

1) an introduction to the Cradle to Cradle® Design Concept (C2C) in the Built Environment by the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA) in Hamburg, Germany. The history, mission and goals of EPEA, co-founder of the C2C methodology which provides the basics for the circular economy, will be presented through a brief overview of past and present projects. Relevant applications for the unfolding design of the SPVH Pavilion will be discussed.

2) the connective practices of the Social Sculpture Research Unit (SSRU) at Oxford Brookes University, highlighting the relationship between imagination and transformation. How ‘instruments of consciousness’ foreground the link between inner work and outer action, the ways ‘inner technologies’ can be mobilized through long-term collab-orative projects such as University of the Trees (UOT) and Earth Forum, and how these practices might be introduced to the MSU audience as part of the extended SPVH Program, will be presented.

Workshop Presenters include:

-Rafaela Zanatta, architect, EPEA Internationale Umweltforschung GmbH - Hamburg

-Shelley Sacks, director, SSRU - Oxford

The workshop is open to the public and will include time for questions and plenary discussion.
