Integration of energy issues into the design process of sustainable neighborhoods
The increasing importance of sustainability in urban and architectural design progressively influences the conception of urban neighborhoods. Among the multiple aspects of this evolution, the reduction of global energy consumption plays a crucial role. Its full achievement involves carrying out different complementary strategies in a structured approach at the territorial, urban, architectural and constructive levels. Analyses made during the realization of the Ecoparc neighborhood in Neuchâtel (Switzerland) provide the opportunity to illustrate these multiple issues.
