Intended learning outcomes *
Generality (5th year)
The project is part of the Sustainable Design Studio.
Studio Description: In order to develop new strategies for designing a sustainable society, this Studio emphazise economy, ecology, energy and new technology in relation to architecture and urban design.
2. The course/project goal is to increase the student's knowledge in this area/field and skills/knowledge in the field of architecture in general. The students will enter the project with varying degrees of knowledge/skills and will subsequently end up at different levels at the end of the course/project.
3. The individual student must show an increase in the particular skills/knowledge offered in the studio and in the field of architecture in general.
In order to develop new strategies for designing a sustainable society, This studio emphasis eseconomy, ecology, energy and new technology in relation to architecture and urban design:
The environmental impact of buildings are eroding the quality of life. The built environment stands for 40% of the energyconsumption and about the same amount of the CO2 emissions in the world, and about 40% of the landfill material as a result of construcion waste. Sustainability has been defined by the Brundtland report 1987 as ”meeting the needs of the present generation, without comprimising with the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. As architects, we must form an opinion about climate change. With the ongoing urbanization and growth of metropolitan regions in our country and around the world, issues of sustainability are stalls, in terms of technical, economical, social and ecological aspects.
The main aim of the Sustainle Design Studio; Generality/Individuality is to examine the relationship between architectural form, structure, materiality and environmental performance, and how these should evolve in response to climate change and changing programmatic requirements in urban environments. The overall goal is to find new strategies for a society characterized by long term sustainability and to acquire knowledge and insights about architecture in a lifecycle perspective; the relationship between architectural organization and the ability to change over time and how local climate affects the design. A sustainable approach to ecology will be weighed against economic and social sustainability.
The project aims:
* To develop an interdisciplinary, integrated design process where all pre-requisites of the environmental
effects are raised early on in the projects work process
* To acquire knowledge and insights about architecture in a lifecycle perspective and about the relationship between architectural organization and the ability to change over time. A sustainable approach to ecology will be weighed against economic and social sustainability.
* To give the students the tools for conceptual, analytical and technical work methods as well as an increased understanding of the relationship between architecture and environmental impact.
