The aim of the course is to provide students with an advanced critical understanding of sustainable building materials and their use in contemporary building constructions. This through the presentation and analysis of relevant design-engineering and architectural scientific literature/theory and experimental methods. As well as through hands-on working with materials and practice in the design and evaluation of sustainable buildings. Finally, insight into material behavior of selected materials, life cycle assessment (LCA) as well as appreciation of how materials may be applied and perceived within the architectural realm.
Must master the design and crafting of a sustainable building detail with an interrelationship between spatial-experience, form, detail, technical performance and materiality.
Can independently handle and evaluate the selection and application of sustainable materials in building designs.
Can independently handle and evaluate selected principles of green building assessment methods.
