Energy Design Strategies

Bernhard Sommer
Architecture, Energy Design
2021S, Seminar (SE), 3.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S01988

Description

Motivation:

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.

Methodology:

Parametric methods and software for building performance evaluation are combined to pursue a design research in performance-driven architecture. This course uses data visualisation to explore architectural qualities, beyond visible geometry. Depending on the seminar work sensors and actuators are applied to support a performative design strategies.

Examination Modalities

For formally and successfully completing the semester task a documentary has to be presented at the end of the semester, as well as some 3d printed stroboscopic modells (photos should be shown in the documentary).

Comments

Distant learning (Corona-mode):

All meetings are held via zoom.us. The key to the meeting is sent to registered students only via basemail.
