We use a lot of words for energy efficient house: passive house, green house, low energy house, NZEB, Energy plus house…
Neolepenism can be a new kind of energy efficient architecture that can respond the challenges of sustainable development. The name Neolepenism is very appropriate because the prefix neo denotes something new, while Lepenism refers to the architecture of the prehistoric settlement and culture of Lepenski Vir. The Lepenski Vir is located on the right bank of the Danube in the Djerdap Gorge (Republic of Serbia). The architecture of this prehistoric settlement has served as an inspiration and role model for a new, copyrighted form of building that is based on the principles of energy efficiency.
The term Neolepenism for this form of architecture was proposed by Serbian actor and former student of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade, Predrag Kolarević, when he saw animations of a building with the this form. This term is not in any way related to the terms “Lepenism” and “Lepenization” encountered on the Internet, which are related to the politics of French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen.
