Aims/Description: This module requires the integrated structural and environmental design of building to a real brief for a recently completed or live project, depending on availability. Students will bring together their skills in architectural tectonics, structural engineering and building physics in an holistic design study. The integration site strategies, built form, orientation with the analysis and simulation of the day-lighting and thermal performance will form an important part of the design.

Restrictions on availability: Available for Architectural Engineering Design students only

Staff Contact: Pam Gattaura
Teaching Methods: Lectures, Fieldwork, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work

Notes: This module forms part of a degree course intended to be accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators of the ICE and IStructE, IMechE and CIBSE.
