Courses

Building design in the circular economy

The class introduces the concept of circular economy and its applications to building design, with a focus on design for disassembly, reuse, and life-cycle assessment (LCA). The class develops a critical mindset and provides ready-to-use techniques. goto


Constructive second hand

Second-hand construction considers circular economy as an opportunity to better design while reusing elements from the deconstruction industry, at a minimum environmental cost. This ENAC week introduces these concepts through hands-on activities. goto


Interactive conceptual design of structural forms

The class exposes students to the geometric design of material efficient architectural structures. The focus is placed on the conceptual exploration of a rich, diverse solution set. Hand-controlled methods and parametric tools are used, as well as strateg... goto


UE K : Architecture and Sustainability : performance studies

This course is based on the team design of a temporary, mobile and sustainable pavilion. A pedagogical approach which will focus on the introduction of the concepts of sustainability applied to the design of a project with a short life span. goto
