Course Synopsis

The aim of this course is to enable the students developing an understanding, knowledge and skills in elements and principles of building design. At the beginning, students will be introduced to the environmental issues that pervade the built environment and therefore influence sustainable design. This then leads to the undertaking of a detailed and systematic exploration of the designs of energy efficient buildings, incorporating thermal control, thermal dynamics, green architecture, thermal insulation, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting and acoustics. While mini projects are designed to help students develop a stronger emphasis in considering in more detail the holistic design of a building, its internal environment, and the system necessary to achieve a sustainable building.
