The aim of the course is to provide students with an in depth and critical understanding of social sustainability, health and wellbeing in sustainable-tectonic architectural design. This with the aim to train students to address how some of the most important societal challenges such as aging society, chronic lifestyle diseases and issues of stress/anxiety relate to architectural design practices and the human perception and experience of different architectural atmospheres. This through the presentation and analysis of relevant design-engineering and architectural scientific literature/research/theory on topics of social sustainability and design for health and wellbeing. As well as an introduction to human-centred research methods and design-ethnographic tools supporting the early design phases.
Must have knowledge of scientific literature/research/theory in design for health and wellbeing and social sustainability in built environments.
Must have knowledge of state-of-the-art design principles/strategies for social sustainability, health and well-being.
Must have knowledge of principles in human perception and atmosphere related to the design of built environments.
Must have knowledge of research-based and design-oriented methods to address human needs and demands in the early design phases
Must be able to identify, select and apply relevant scientific literature/research/theory to support the integration of perspectives of social sustainability, health and well-being in the early design phases.
Must be able to understand and integrate principles of human perception and architectural atmosphere in the early design phases.
Must be able to critically address user perspectives and integrate concerns for human needs and demands in the early design phases.
Can independently handle, evaluate and critically reflect on the selection of relevant scientific literature/research/theory.
Can independently evaluate and critically reflect on state-of-the-art design principles/strategies for social sustainability, health and well-being.
