2012 Intelligent Green Building Design Competition Guidelines
Because of greenhouse effect and climate change, it is a global tendency to integrate green building and intelligent technology and push forward to the intelligent green building. It is also one of the four innovative intelligent industries promoted by Taiwan’s government at this stage. The Ministry of Interior, Architecture and Building Research Institute (ABRI) authorizes Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to conduct 2012 Intelligent Green Building Design Award, which is the sixth annual competition since 2007. In order to inspire creativity and to find demands in existing space (residence, office, dormitory, etc.), participants should demonstrate creative conceptual products / systems / services or an actual renovated project (with related design items embedded into the intelligent green building). It is expected that the result will provide references for the public in introducing renovation strategies and for the industry in developing intelligent green building products. Thus, the industry potential in Taiwan will be elevated in order to enable better quality living environment for the people.
The design targets in this year focus on existing building space renovations and with the main theme of intelligent green building design. There are two divisions for this competition:
Division A: Creative Thinking
Participants should introduce sustainable design or emerging technologies (e.g. information, communication, sensing, control, etc.) into existing building space through innovative designs of space, products or services and demonstrate quality living space and lifestyle after the renovation in order to provide an insight into the problems in our daily life and exploring human needs in areas of safety, healthcare, energy conservation, sustainability, and convenience.
Division B: Toward Future Home
Participants should introduce sustainable design or emerging technologies (e.g. information, communication, sensing, control, etc.) into an actual renovation project of existing buildings (which already had a building permit for construction), in order to provide solutions to the problems or challenges in our daily life and exploring human needs in areas of safety, healthcare, energy conservation, sustainability, and convenience.
