The AiEM research group is oriented towards the investigation of architecture from the environmental point of view. Its research considers both the environmental parameters affecting human comfort and perception as well as the possible impact that building activities can cause to cities and the environment. The activity carried out considers different scales, from architectural indoor qualities and building elements to public spaces and urban morphology features. Following this line of interest, the group has developed extensive research related with integration of renewable energies, materials life-cycle, life quality, bioclimatic architecture and other fields involving architecture, energy and environment. This previous work, carried out since 1980, along with the expertise of the group members, puts AiEM in an excellent position to progress in the right path towards a high-level research.
