Building technology VI

Detailed descriptions of complex building projects are employed to examine the relationship between spatial, environmental, structural, material and design. Concrete application of the topics studied in Tech. du Bâti V and a major integrative case study are required.

Studio MA2 (FAR)

The atelier will reflect on the role of architecture and technology in an environmentally sensitive, production-specific and culturally rich setting such as Lavaux, where the students will consider accommodation, rehersal, and performing facilities for visiting guitar musicians.
