After many meetings and uncountable hours of online working, partners from Polimi and UN-Habitat got the chance to work together in Milano.
The meeting was focused on analysing the passive features of the UN-Habitat office building in Nairobi, Kenya and design the monitoring experiment to test the passive features of the building. It has a large central atrium running along the structure, which is elongated in the directions est-west . This allows natural ventilation of the offices facing on one side the external environment and on the other the central atrium, which has wide upper openings and hosts an internal garden. The meeting was the first held in presence between Politecnico di Milano and U-Habitat, for the first time since the inception of the project, 2 years ago, due to the Covid travel and safety restrictions La Reunion University participated to the meeting remotely.
