Visits, carried out by deltaZERO SA architects from Lugano, Stefano de Angelis and Maria Mazza, and by Pierluigi Bonomo, Head of Innovative Envelope team at ISAAC, were transmitted via two live Facebook videos, at the Building Energy Modeling Course, held by Prof. Enrico de Angelis at the Milan Polytechnic, which followed these interesting interventions live.
