IE School of Biology acoge el martes 11 de mayo, a las 11:00 horas una conferencia sobre el estudio y seguimiento ambientales en parques eólicos, que será impartida por el biólogo y consultor medioambiental Álvaro Camiña. La ponencia ha sido organizada por Patricia Mateo Tomás, profesora de Evaluación de Impacto Ambiental en 4º de Biología.

La conferencia en IE School of Biology versará, en base a la experiencia de ocho años en este sector, sobre las carencias actuales del proceso de Impacto Ambiental y en cómo solucionarlas. Así mismo, se profundizará en los seguimientos de siniestralidad posteriores analizando el efecto que este tipo de energía tiene sobre aves y mamíferos voladores, sugiriendo medidas correctoras que lo minimicen.

Environmental impact assessment and surveillance on wind farms  

Spain has become one of the world’s biggest producers of wind power. On the other hand, according to the European legislation, several projects, including wind farms, must be evaluated through Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Once approved, wind farms must be surveyed to ensure the correct implementation of those measures recommended by the Environmental Impact Report. Bird and bat mortality due to collision with wind turbines is one of those aspects to be controlled at wind farms. However, this collision risk is difficult to assess both during the elaboration of the Environmental Impact Report and once the wind farm is working. Accordingly, clear instructions on this process are needed.

This talk will be about the current lacks of Environmental Impact Assessment, providing some instructions to solve them. Additionally, it will be provided information of bird and bad mortality at wind farms, analysing the potential effects and proposing mitigation measures. The talk will be based on a wide professional experience (i.e. > 8 years) in the sector of wind farm surveillance.

Invited speaker: Álvaro Camiña Cardenal 

He received his BSc. in Biology from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain. He is currently working as environmental consultant for several wind farm promoters. He also works for several regional governments (e.g. Gobierno de La Rioja, Generalitat Valenciana, Junta de Andalucía) where had developed studies on raptors and big mammals. He is member of the most important international organisations on raptor conservation such as the Vulture Conservation Foundation/VCF in Europe, the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) in South Africa and the Raptor Research Foundation in USA.      Read more…


Viernes/ Friday. 12/02/2010 13.00 h. Construir en el lugar. Francisco Cifuentes, Palma de Mallorca ( Profesor Asociado de Proyectos y Dibujo, EAR-URV, Reus;  Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture, EAR-URV, Reus). 

Francisco Cifuentes explains how those places in which only vernacular knowledge dictates how to build lead the architect back to the learning process. Because it is in tradition, in the secular cultural model, in everything rooted that is transmitted over generations, where the architect truly learns his/her craft. Cifuentes was born in Palma de Mallorca and studied in Barcelona. He develops the broadest part of his professional activity in the island, but his commitment to teaching and research make him travel mainland constantly. He studies the anonymous constructions and the historical monuments of Mallorca with the same attention and depth; he experiments and discovers new possibilities of construction with low-tech materials, as thermo clay blocks or cement beam filler blocks. 

He has been Finalist of the FAD 2007 Prize and has been awarded the First Architecture Prize of Mallorca 2004-2005-2006 (COAIB) for the Bunyola single family house. Cifuentes was selected for the Young Spanish Architects-JAE Exhibition 2008, he was the First Prize of Opinion and Honorable Mention for his communication in the Forum Arquia/Próxima 2008, organized by the Caja de Arquitectos. He is currently developing his doctoral research on the “Lonja of Guillem Sagrera” in Palma de Mallorca.  

El arquitecto Francisco Cifuentes, ponente en la IE School of Architecture

Francisco Cifuentes, una de las jóvenes promesas de la arquitectura española, impartirá el viernes 12 de febrero, a las 13.00 horas, una conferencia en IE School of Architecture bajo el título “Construir en el lugar”. La ponencia se enmarca dentro del ciclo “glocal: acting global, acting local”, que imparte una serie de jóvenes arquitectos de reconocido talento que realizan su trabajo desde muy diferentes lugares y enfoques, y que demuestran tener una especial capacidad para sintetizar con maestría un mismo par de opuestos: lo local y lo global. 

Francisco Cifuentes pondrá de manifiesto que los lugares donde el hacer popular sabe construir son los que devuelven el arquitecto al proceso de aprendizaje. Para este experto, “el arquitecto aprende verdaderamente su oficio en la tradición, en lo vernáculo, en todo aquello arraigado a la tierra y que se transmite generación tras generación”.
