Chiara Tonelli

PhD in Architectural Technology
Chiara Tonelli, associated professor habilitated in Technology of Architecture, conceived and coordinated the first Italian project ever admitted to the International Competition called “Solar Decathlon”, that challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.

Chiara Tonelli, associated professor habilitated in Technology of Architecture, conceived and coordinated the first Italian project ever admitted to the International Competition called “Solar Decathlon”, that challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. Solar Decathlon homes have a post-occupancy monitoring procedure: projects must show their real performance when operated by the team itself.
The winner of the competition, that spans over two years, is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with a verification on site of optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. The Italian project, called MED in Italy, classified 3rd at the 2012 edition, winning the 1st award in the Sustainability contest, the 2nd award in House Functioning and four 3rd awards in Architecture, Innovation, Communication and Energy Balance. Now she is just finishing a second Solar Decathlon project, called RhOME for denCity, again the only Italian team admitted to the competition, this time the Solar Decathlon 2014. This project has been award with the 1st final award.
Architect since 1996, she designed many projects for privates and public Entities, in which she blends her skills in project management and environmental design. The design strategies developed in all her projects are deployed with advanced digital methods through BIM, and applied on housing in particular, where she focuses on solving problems of informal settlements for urban regeneration in mild-warm climates, where the challenge to protect buildings from hot summer temperatures is much stronger than from winter cold temperatures. In the last 4 years she pushed several partnerships between Industry and University, focused on the application of new technologies and experimental technical solutions with Italian and International industrial partners.
These alliances, financed with over 2 million of euros (cash and in-kind), lead to patents and spin-offs. She has been academically responsible of Research Fellows and Scholarships, and followed over 50 theses as supervisor. She participated as invited speaker to over a hundred conferences, symposiums and seminars in Italy and around the world. She presented Tv programs and shows on the Architecture topics (RAI TRE, Leonardo, Real Time). She won over 10 international awards. Since 2000 she teaches Courses, Design Studios, and Workshops.
