About the show (on-line only)
Architecture is a science arising out of many other sciences, and adorned with much and varied learning; by the help of which a judgment is formed of those works which are the result of other arts." Vitruvius
This course provides specialist knowledge in a variety of subjects that are mainstream to low energy design towards truly sustainable development. Particular emphasis is given to state of the art technologies, regulations and important issues towards a green agenda. Practical and theoretical grounding is given in a list of topics that include climate change, sustainability, passive and renewable solutions, energy efficiency, daylight and artificial lighting, visual and thermal comfort of the occupants, indoor air quality and the environmental impact of materials, buildings and the development of sustainable cities. Students acquire skills to promote and design buildings that are aesthetically interesting, low energy and comfortable to the occupants.
Examples presented represent technical studies adopted to assess and substantiate design solutions, proposals for refurbishment of existing buildings (school and dwellings) and new developments (sports pavilion, supermarket, military facility and zero carbon development) on different climatic and urban environments.
