Basic information

Hábitat Sustentable is an electronic publication maintained by the University of Bío-Bío, through the department of Architectural Design and Theory, and supported by the Performance of Innovation in Biomaterials and Energy Efficiency Agreement for Hábitat Sustentable (MECESUP CD-INES). The journal has the primary objective of diffusing knowledge in relation to the sustainability of the built environment, from architectural scale and public space to the scale of construction systems and materials. Therefore, it proposes to divulge results from investigations conducted from and for the Ibero-American context, by means of a semi-annual publication in the second fortnight of June and December that allows readers to update their knowledge in related themes. The journal is directed at architects, builders, engineers, designers, academics, researchers and professionals that work in related areas of the built environment.

Created in the year 2011, the journal is issued thanks to the MEL-Conicyt Integrated Design for the Reconstruction of Energy Efficient Homes project, backed by the Chilean Energy Efficiency Agency (AChee).
