CA18137 - MCMH-EU
European Middle Class
Mass Housing
MCMH has been generally underestimated in
urban and architectural studies and there is still
a lack of comparative analysis and global
perspectives. By crossing different approaches
focus on Architecture, Urbanism, Planning,
Public Policies, History, Sociology, our network
allows a wider understanding of MCMH sprawl,
deepening on-going researches and focussing
on the existing case studies.

OBJECTIVES
The main aim and objective of the MCMH-EU
The main challenge of MCMH-EU is to create a transnational network that gathers European researchers carrying studies on Middle-Class Mass Housing (MCMH) built in Europe since the 1950s and to develop new scientific approaches by discussing, testing and assessing diverse case studies and their different methodologies and perspectives.
The target groups of the Action include three levels of end users:
  • Academic/scientific working groups;
  • Institutional stakeholders and policymakers;
  • Local communities.
MOU
WORKING GROUPS
MCMH-EU is being developed by 3 Working Groups
WG 1

Documenting the MCMH

WG 2

Development of a specific set of (new) concepts for MCMH analyses

WG 3

Leverage contemporary architecture interventions and Public Policies

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Žana Stevanović is a Doctor of Science in mechanical engineering, researcher assistant professor at the Institute of Nuclear Sciences Vinca in Belgrade and technical assessor. She works on projects in the field of building and thermal environment and renewable energy (FP7, Tempus, DAAD, MARIA CUIRIE, SINPHONIE, PURGE, SEARCH2 ). She is invited lecturer for DAAD(Sustainable pact for Southeast of Europe) and “Energy passport for residential buildings according to recommendation of an EU standard regulations”at Chamber of engineer Republic of Serbia. She is on project MCMH-EU in a function as an MC member of Serbia task force WG1. Her role is to identify problems of climate change in residential sectors and thermal comfort among residents in area of different ethical backgrounds and age difference among cases of high density residential area.

ABSTRACT

The main objective of this paper is to evaluate simulation of thermal performance of a residential 4 floors high building placed in the suburb of Belgrade (ground and 3 upper floors) with it’s total surface area of 1410 m2. It’s supplied with liquid petroleum gas storage tank as a fuel reservoir since there is automatic gas boiler in each apartment. Measurements have been carried out in first floor apartment (68 m2 heating area) in heating season period. Measured parameters are: inside and outside air temperature and U-value of apartment envelope. Weather data is obtained by using METEONORM, the software package for climatic data calculation based on last 10 years measurements. TRNSYS 16 has been used as the simulation tool. The behavior of the building in terms of heating loads for climate on a daily and monthly basis in heating season is investigated. The calculations show possibility for saving energy by optimization inside temperature during different gas boiler working regimes.

Open Calls

CALL FOR PROPOSALS - For all Action-Members - Deadline for proposals extended to 17 July 2020
MCMH-EU Youtube Channel
Deadline for proposals
17/07/2020
Communication of selection
Until 30/07/2020 (will be done by an evaluation committee appointed for this specific role by the three WG-leaders)
Deadline for final videos
31/08/2020

MCMH-EU is organising a MCMH-EU Youtube Channel with a series of video podcasts from September 2020. This series will allow our action to remain active even in this time of health crisis, especially since we do not know when international travel will be allowed. Besides that, it is a good way to share our research and increase our COST-Action visibility beyond its members.

We are now looking for proposal with this Call for Proposals for all Action-Members. We highly encourage all Action-Members – in particular ITC and Young researchers – to submit a proposal for a video (up to 300 words) within the following thematic categories.

There will be two categories of videos podcasts:

  • A short version (6-8 min)
  • A long version (15-20 min)

The proposal should indicate which category applies.
We are very much looking forward to receive your proposals. Please send your proposal to the relevant WG-leader until 17/07/2020.

Thematic categories

  • MCMH History – Historical synopsis (Historical synopsis of a case study)
  • MCMH Architecture / Urbanism (e.g.: Learning from Projects; Maps/planning/GIS; Typologies; Housing and Collective Spaces; Landscape Views; Covid-19 pandemic)
  • MCMH Concepts / References (e.g.: Defining Middle Class; Housing and Social Class; Mass Housing)
  • MCMH Public Policies (e.g.: Country portrait, Case studies)
  • MCMH-EU Countries (Videos related to the different/selected countries)
  • MCMH-Touring cities (Videos related to the different/selected countries)
  • MCMH-Interviews (Interviews with another MCMH-EU member or any MCMH expert)
  • MCMH-Open Category (You are welcome to suggest another category)
