The Martin Centre - Philip Steadman - 27 January 2021
Welcome to the 51st annual series of the Martin Centre Research Seminar, Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge

Topic: Energy, Density and Built Form

Abstract: The relationships of built form to density, and built form to heat loss, have been studied at Cambridge since the 1970s. In this talk I will describe recent sequels, in empirical work on density in housing at TU Delft, and in the work of my group at the Building Stock Laboratory at University College London. With our 3DStock model we have been able to explore relationships between energy use, density and built form in all buildings in London, including gas use for heating in houses and flats; the effects of height on energy use in offices; and patterns of density and energy use across the metropolis.

Speaker's bio: Proferssor Philip Steadman is Emeritus Professor of Urban and Built Form Studies at UCL, and a member of the UCL Energy Institute. He works in research on the geometry of buildings and cities, and their use of energy. One recent EPSRC-funded project looked at energy use in high-rise buildings. With colleagues he has been developing the 3DStock method of modelling energy use in the building stock. In 2020 his team delivered the London Building Stock Model to the GLA. He has published a number of books and many papers on geometry and architecture.
