The paper BIOPHILIC PATTERN AND APPEARANCE OF LEPENSKI VIR HABITATS by Nenad B. Miloradović was included in the Book of Abstracts of the 10th International Conference ON ARCHITECTURE – PHILOSOPHY OF ARCHITECTURE in Chapter III – Technology and Architecture on page 47.
Conference 2-3 December 2022, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Belgrade, Serbia
Poslovno udruženje toplana Srbije TOPS održalo je 19. susrete toplana Srbije u okviru kojih je bila naučno-stručna konferencija TOPS 2021. Mesto održavanja konfrencije je bio hotel “Palisad” na Zlatiboru, Srbija. Konferencija je održana 18.6.2021. Na toj konferenciji, čija je glavna tema bila dekarbonizacija, predstavio je svoju prezentaciju Nenad B. Miloradović kao predstavnik JKP “Beogradske elektrane”. Tema njegove prezentacije je “Solarno daljinsko grejanje i arhitektura neolepenizma – sprega za uspešnu dekarbonizaciju”.

This paper presents the case study of the authors’ design of the earth-sheltered house in Village Dobraca near Kragujevac, Serbia, in the context of development and some thermal properties of the underground housing. The historical insight, in brief, provides a better understanding of the reasons for their modern use as energy efficient and sustainable structures. It shows that underground houses even today are more thermally efficient than above ground houses since, besides earth, there is no need for new additional thermal layers. The article also includes a review of the representative physical forms of the underground housing through different periods, with the result of measurement of their main properties. The study of the underground housing structures provides an insight of the relation between the location and typology of underground homes in a contest of climate zones. These structures have an almost constant temperature, which provides the primary “comfort” condition in which the man is determined to live in. The results on property-based monitoring data showed that the earth-sheltered house could provide the thermal comfort that is close to the ideal human needs temperature. Today, the new materials and especially the solar, geothermal, and wind accessories, enables the maximum sustainability of these specific building structures and provides them with an even better energy efficiency.
The selection for the presentations of the “architecture of the future” on the Future Architecture platform is underway. I applied for this competition with my idea of a type of house that represents a new green technology with roots in prehistory (so-called neolepenism). Applications have been sent from all over the world and 25 ideas will be selected to be presented, including one by the audience. You can vote on the link bellow, if you like this idea, by clicking the “I like it” button at the end of page. The post can be shared on some social networks, and below the voting button there is a link where you can see other submitted ideas, for those who are interested. Voting lasts until noon UTC on January 14th.
The author of Neolepenism house visited the Museum Lepenski Vir on the Friday, 28th of August 2020. Here is a short presentation of the model of Neolepenism house at the archeological site, which was the model for this new energy efficient architecture. Neolepenism house architecture can respond to challenges of Climate changes and Global warming.
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.
KGH Society of Serbia, at SMEITS, from December 4-6, 2019 was organized the Jubilee, 50th International Congress and Exhibition of KGH (HVAC &R). On this occasion, the SMEITS Board of Directors decided to award a one-off “Recognition for Outstanding Contribution to th Development of the HVAC&R Profession and Long-Term Support to the KGH Congress 1970-2019”. The acknowledgment was personally delivered from professor PhD Branislav Todorović, the President of KGH Society of Serbia at the opening ceremony of the 50th Congress on December 4, 2019 at 10.00 in Room 1 of the Sava Center in Belgrade.
