About the Built Heritage Innovation Lab of the Institute for Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage of the National Research Council of Italy

High Performance Architecture Research Cluster hosted the talk titled “About the Built Heritage Innovation Lab of the Institute for Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage of the Italian National Research Council of Italy” by Dr Filippo Calcerano, architect and researcher at the Institute for Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage of the National Research Council of Italy.

 

Dr Filippo Calcerano

Dr Filippo Calcerano, architect and researcher at the Institute for Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage of the National Research Council of Italy is on a short term mobility program at UNSW to foster international collaboration between the CNR and foreign research institution, and will present the activities of his laboratory whose mission is the sustainable conservation and urban regeneration of the built heritage merging hard science and humanities.

Dr Calcerano’s (23/04/1983 architect and full-time tenured researcher at the BHI LAB of the ITABC-CNR) research interests are in environmental design, building and microclimate performance simulations, interoperability, and BIM, applied in the field of cultural heritage. He is member of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IT and UK chapters), of the Italian Society of Architectural Technology (SITdA), and reviewer for Energy & Buildings, Building and Environment and Sustainable Cities and Society. Thanks to his national and international professional and academic experience, he developed and consolidated a particular sensitivity to interdisciplinary research and the role of knowledge-gaps closer between different research fields and stakeholders in order to streamline innovative efficient and sustainable digital workflows applied to the AEC industry and mainly on the cultural heritage. During the National, European and International projects in which he participated, he deepened the disciplinary integration between environmental design and conservation addressing the complexity inherent in historical buildings and urban fabrics through the development of IT management systems (Heritage Building Information Modelling, interoperability, IT programming) and tools for analysis and decision support (participatory approach, numerical simulations, multi criteria analysis), leading also a multidisciplinary team on interoperability between Heritage BIM and numerical simulations through the use of computational design.
