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

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

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
