The three-year long research project, STED, Nordic Built – Sustainable Transformation and Environmental Design concludes in a workshop and a seminar at the new BLOX in Copenhagen this weekend. Also a publication documenting the research project is now launched and available to the public.

STED has been a three year long project with the aim of developing new tools for making it possible to effectively use an assessment based on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) as a way to evaluate the sustainability of architectural design projects from the early design stages on. It has provided a successful platform for collaboration between Nordic practitioners and reserachers for developing new design solutions and design processes for construction, renovation and transformation.

The project was initiated and coordinated by the Technical University of Denmark DTU. Selected architecture offices with a focus on research and development as part of their practice from each of the five Nordic counties were invited to take part in the project: Tegnestuen Vandkunsten from Denmark, Helen & Hard Arkitekter from Norway, White Arkitekter from Sweden, Studio Granda from Iceland, and OOPEAA from Finland.

The project consortium consisted of four research institutions in the Nordic countries: DTU and Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole KADK in Denmark, Norges Teknisk Naturvitenskapelige Universitet NTNU in Norway, and Chalmers Tekniska Universitet CTH in Sweden. The STED research project was funded by a Nordic Innovation grant.
