Energy Design Integration
Architecture, Energy Design
2017W, Seminar (SE), 2.0 semester hours, course number S01987
IT IS REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR THIS SEMINAR VIA THE LINKED FORM:
This course can only be chosen during your pre-diploma (5th semester) and has to be based on your pre-diploma studio project.
The impact of environmental and ecological parameters becomes increasingly formative in architectural design. To give architects a head start within this discourse, this course aims to develope design strategies that integrate architectural sciences, such as buliding physics and ecological engineering, into the design process.
Energy Design is basically seen as a design strategy, which allows to develope systems to balance the energy consumption and the energy production of buildings. Beyond that, in this course, energy shall not only be discussed as an economic and physical quantity, but in the context of perceptual qualities. Energy design shall thus be applied at the very beginning of the design process, not only informing the design for an improved energy performance, but making energy-related environmental qualities an intrinsic part of the architectural experience.
Form-Finding, Optimization, Fabrication:
Existing parametric and generative desing strategies usually focus on either the automate composition of form, the optimization of previously conceived forms or the data-driven fabrication of building components (file-to-factory, rapid manufacturing). All of these shall be involved in the design research.
Parametric methodes and software for building performance evaluation are combined to pursue a design research in performance-driven architecture.
Based on an individual research agenda, students develope a specific design study based on their pre-diploma project. Analysis, concepts and the formal impact have to presented in a PDF booklet.
Seminar is taught in English.
Further dates will be agreed upon via individual desk crits.
