  • Experiments in mapping human factors for sustainable design and living
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: R. García Mira & A. Dumitru (Eds.), Urban Sustainability: Innovative Spaces, Vulnerabilities and Opportunities. A Coruña: Institute of Psychosocial Studies and Research “Xoan Vicente Viqueira”. ; , s. 117-130
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This paper explores architectural design considerations regarding challenges of sustainable living, drawing parallels to extreme environments, in relation to user-centered design research conducted by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, University of Houston and NASA. It further discusses application in the context of a Sustainable Living Lab, to be built as student housing on the Chalmers campus. Extreme environments are here defined as places that pose significant complications and risks for people to maintain their usual everyday activities with a certain level of physical and psychological comfort. The research addresses the need for integrated solutions, and the conscious development of sustainable strategies based in an understanding of human factors and residential practices. The paper presents a theoretical and methodological background for a proposed experimental ‘design/build/live’ approach and results from initial studies with students on user perceptions and ideation. Findings indicate that an optimization of spatial or material use can be found for example in a reassessment of activities perceived as private or shared, as well as the spatial compatibility of different functions, informing the design of facilities and building systems, as well as social organization and demands for supporting systems. Perceptions on changing practices towards shared use, and the value of co-creation processes for enabling sustainable living practices are emphasized.

  • Testing and evaluating sustainable design practices
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Proceedings from the International Conference on Architectural Research ARCC/EAAE, 12-15 February, 2014 Honolulu.
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • his paper presents an in-progress design research conducted by teachers and students of Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and the University of Houston (USA), in the form of a Habitation Laboratory (HabLab) (Nystrom, et al. 2000) design studio and in connection with a Sustainable Living Lab project.The ‘HSB Sustainable Living Lab’, is a collaborative effort between the largest Swedish cooperative housing association, HSB, and Johanneberg Science Park, and will be built in 2014 as a student housing, located on Chalmers main campus. Its location offers a unique opportunity to merge research, education and outreach. A 400 m2 three-story building will accommodate 25-30 students and guest researchers. Student units are designed to be flexible and adaptable to possible layout adjustments and changes throughout a ten-year building permit timeframe. The structure will also include additional facilities such as an exhibition area, a common laundry room and various meeting zones. The paper identifies and investigates experiments in sustainable design education through the use of a design studio as the first stage within the larger “Sustainable Living Lab” research and building environment project. The goal of the educational initiative is implementing practice and construction experience into the learning process by combining hands-on approaches with theoretical development in trans-disciplinary real-life contexts, where design serves as a link between practices and disciplines. This is argued to be essential in the shaping of future responsible architectural practices. Possible applications of lessons learned for the design of future environments is a key inquiry. The project objectives are: developing participatory and user-centered design research methodologies and measures, as well as studying how sustainable innovations are applied and perceived in the living environments of everyday life.

  • The Habitation Lab: Using a Design Approach to Foster Innovation for Sustainable Living
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Technology Innovation Management Review. - 1927-0321. ; 2013:November, s. 15-21
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This article describes a first step towards a strategy for using living labs as a means to foster innovation and develop new concepts of sustainable living from an architectural point of view. The overall aim is to enable truly sustainable living through radically reduced energy and resource use thus addressing both environmental and social aspects of sustainability. Earlier research has shown that contemporary housing developments, including those with a sustainable profile, do not profoundly question modern lifestyles and consumption, which is a necessity to overcome limitations of a technological focus on environmental efficiency in construction. Thus, we see an opportunity for the discipline of architecture to engage in current investments in living lab facilities in order to push innovation in the field of sustainable housing.We introduce the concept of a "Habitation Lab", which will provide an arena for radical and high-risk design experimentation between users, building-sector actors, and academia, and we describe a case study of a planned Habitation Lab within a living lab facility where traditional solutions for daily living and habitation are questioned and new architectural innovations are explored and evaluated. The idea of using experimental activities in the field of housing is not new, and we argue that new investments should build on earlier experiences to avoid perpetuating misconceptions and repeating past failures. Furthermore, to ensure the dissemination and uptake of results, the design of the Habitation Lab should consider the innovation and learning trajectories of the building sector. We propose a transdisciplinary setting to provide a neutral arena for value creation and to increase the distribution of experiences.

  • A sustainable home? Reconceptualizing home in a low-impact society
  • 2016
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This thesis addresses the environmental and socio-economic impact of modern ways of living, focusing on home-related concepts and practices for transitions to a less environmentally harmful and more socially just society. Exploring diverse conceptualizations of a sustainable home, the aim is to broaden discourses on less resource-intensive ways of living and residing.Employing a primarily qualitative and explorative research approach, the thesis presents three empirical studies on how sustainability in housing and concepts of home are perceived among different actors: 1) developers and architects involved in a new “green” urban development; 2) “ordinary” residents in a tenant-owned multi-family housing association; and 3) “home-front transitioners” engaging in low-impact practices. The findings highlight the complexity of approaching a sustainable housing development. On one hand, the empirical insights reveal structural lock-ins in mainstream market-led development, with a techno-centered view of sustainability, conventional understandings of residents’ preferences and household configurations, and lack of competence regarding social dimensions. On the other hand, there appears to be a gap between a reported interest among residents in living in less resource-intensive ways (including living smaller, simpler, or more collaboratively), and relevant alternatives within the current housing market. Attempting to find ways of going beyond these unilateral interpretations and lock-ins, the thesis suggests conceptualizing home as a node, framing understandings of home and everyday practices as a starting point for transitions to a low-impact society, rather than seeing the dwelling as an object upon or in which sustainable technologies and solutions can be placed. This is further linked to exploring agency in and of the home, acknowledging residents as active agents rather than “end-users” or consumers. In conclusion, the thesis emphasizes the need to problematize contemporary discourses on sustainability in housing. It makes a case for the need to rethink how we view home in relation to a radically reduced resource intensity, proposing a reconceptualization of home in transitions to a low-impact society.

  • BEYOND GREEN - the unsustainable home in the environmentally adapted building
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: 10th European Academy of Design Conference - Crafting the Future, 17-19 April, 2013, Göteborg.
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Last years have shown a rapid development of low-energy construction in Sweden. On the whole, environmental consideration in the construction sector can no longer be considered marginal. Of interest to this paper is whether the same effort is made to facilitate sustainable homes as is made to produce environmentally adapted residential buildings? While environmental and technical dimensions of sustainable building has predominated the agenda since the mid 1990s, social and cultural dimensions have had more of a recent focus. An increasing number of studies point to the need to go beyond technical solutions to solve environmental problems related to the built environment. There is a need for major behavioral changes, supported by the provision of living environments with a physical infrastructure for enabling more sustainable ways of residing. This paper presents a study of a multi-family residential area in Göteborg called Kvillebäcken, a new urban development with high ambitions to mitigate the impact of new housing on the global climate as well as the local environment. The study is primarily based on statistical data and interviews with property developers. The findings are examined in relation to general statistical data and theory, and arranged according to three main themes of individual demand, spatial norms and standards/comfort, influencing the absolute impact of housing development on the creation of sustainable living environments. The study shows that outspoken aims of creating ways of residing that radically challenge the normative and resource intense concept of “the good urban home” appear to be lacking. It is concluded that design might hold a bigger role in the shift towards smaller and better performing dwellings in order to offer residential quality while reducing the environmental impact of living environments.

  • Conceptualizing the sustainable home - Explorations of alternative home practices
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Abstract presented at CIB W069 Meeting “Explorations on Residential Qualities: Situations of Dwelling, Ageing and Healthcaring. Inquiries of Transdisciplinary Nature”, 14-17 October, 2015, Göteborg.
  • Konferensbidrag (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • How we design, build and manage our living environments is instrumental in the environmental, socio-cultural as well as politico-economical implications of the built environment. A main indicator of resource use in particular is moreover found in individual residents’ ways of life, as well as aspects of material, spatial and thermal standards that influence the energy and resource intensity of contemporary home life. Of interest to the presented research is how residents’ perceptions of home, housing development and living standards relate to environmental attitudes and interpretations of sustainability. It explores perceptions of and the potential for less resource intensive home-related practices, primarily linked to voluntary simplicity, living smaller, as well as sharing spaces and resources in or in relation to the dwelling.A mixed methods approach is used to study residents’ perspectives, with empirical material from two different studies in two varying contexts: an urban tenant-owned housing association in Gothenburg; and semi-rural households in the Municipality of Alingsås. In the first study, questionnaires were distributed to all households within a selected housing association, with a response rate of 51% (n=156). By recruitment through the questionnaires, follow-up interviews were conducted with 22 of the households. A second study revolves around narratives from people that have intentionally chosen to live in various alternative ways, where seven deep interviews, following a more ethnographic approach, offer valuable empirical insights.The studies provide a basis for exploring alternative home-related practices. The efficacy of current ‘green’ housing development is discussed, as well as the willingness among residents to reduce resource use in relation to more or less normative representations of home. The need for understanding residents’ dispositions and the implications this might have for targeting the resource intensity of homes in more or less radical ways is emphasized, in order to develop future approaches and policy.
