Regenerative indoor environments – how can we characterize and evaluate them?
Towards a carbon-neutral society that accounts for the co-evolvement of human and natural ecosystems.
Speaker Dr Lorenza Pistore is currently project manager at R2M solution. After a master degree in Architecture in 2015, in 2019 she has obtained her PhD in Sustainable Energy and Technologies from the Free University of Bolzano. During that period, she spent some time as a visiting scholar at the Center for the Built Environment of UC Berkeley. She continued her academic research activity until 2023 at University Iuav and University Ca’ Foscari of Venice.
Her research activities are focused mainly on Indoor Environmental Quality, with a deeper interest in thermal comfort and air quality, and on the quantification of the multiple benefits coming from the design and operation of high-performance buildings. She has also deeply worked on school buildings, focusing both on occupants’ wellbeing and energy efficiency retrofit.
She has participated as task leader to the EU COST Action RESTORE “Rethink Sustainability Towards a Regenerative Economy” and she supervised the organization of the linked training school “Rethinking technologies for regenerative indoor environment” held in Venice. Currently she is working in several European projects.
