e House schools – requirements Passive House schools – requirements The criteria for building Passive House schools were developed by the Research Group for Cost-efficient Passive Houses on the topic of “Passive House schools”: 1. Each modern school should have controlled ventilation which meets the criteria for acceptable indoor air quality. This was shown in a contribution by Rainer Pfluger in the relevant Protocol Volume [AkkP 33] . This is nothing new; these findings had often been made during measurements of the air quality in schools, but were repeatedly ignored. 2. With these reference values, the result is a significant improvement in the air quality in comparison with the values usually obtained in Germany, Austria and Switzerland today. In comparison with residential and office buildings, the overall air flow rates and air change rates which have to be planned are considerably higher during use due to the increased number of persons present in schools. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

The School Vent Cool Project | Smart City Living Lab Growing urbanisation, sustainable development, digital challenge, users’ involvement, economic and cultural attractiveness, governance are part of the main stakes cities have to tackle. To face this plural urban reality, it has become necessary to find adapted means to conceive cities and territorial development. A better consideration of the uses, the creation of real consultation methods have priority. Thus, the new processes to imagine have to respond to a main stake: to restructure urban places to live and to invent a creative, sustainable and citizen–centred city. As a laboratory for urban innovation, SmartCity invites people from creative and digital economy, users, academics, local authorities, architects and urban planners to create unreleased ways of apprehending and transforming the city. In France, a full-scale experimentation is led in the south of Paris since 2007, in partnership with the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris. ◊ To study new urban uses
