Research results on the nexus of urban green spaces and climate

Exhibition of architect Eva Stache építész (the Netherlands)

As part of the opening, Eva Stache gives a lecture (in Hungarian)

                   finissage: 2022 04 03


Eva Stache is an architect and researcher at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) Faculty of Architecture Department of Matter and Nature Preservation. After graduating in architecture she tried out herself in every field of planning: theater, applied arts, graphic design, typography, monumental street art, interior design. But first and foremost, she enjoys to work as an architect. She sees space as continuous, in which all points of view and scale is part of the architectural task, from social and financial questions to sustainability and climatic adaptation.


When someone asked her the question where they should plant trees in order to cool the street and she did not have an immediate answer at hand, it was natural for her to start analyzing urban ecosystems at TU Delft. The research soon raised further questions and brought up unexpected results. The physical characteristics (micro scale) of the urban interior materials have a determining influence on the cities’ climate (macro scale). She pointed out scientifically that the exterior, inter-building space is absent in the current urban planning and architectural practices as regards climate adaptation measures.


Her research results are methodologically in-built in her architectural practice, she shares her calculations and new knowledge with all participants in their projects. The result is a new architectural language that seeks the spatial solutions where the human needs, functions and wishes are intertwined with the functions and needs of nature: water, light, energy and living environment.


Her research is ongoing, hence this exhibition is not more than a snapshot, a station of exploration. Raising questions along the border of exact sciences and rhapsodic architecture. A second of silence in the deafening noise of  the clash between architectural forms and natural forces.
