Building technology I, II

Introduction to building technology: environmental and societal challenges, life-cycle functional and technical requirements of buildings, static behavior of structures, construction materials and their implementation, historico-cultural contexts, sustainability strategies and circular economy.

UE K : Architecture and Sustainability : performance studies

This course is based on the team design of a temporary, mobile and sustainable theater. 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.

Interactive conceptual design of structural forms
