    • Course Description:
    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This is an elective course for architecture students. This course integrates architecture, material, bio climate, environment and thermal. The multidisciplinary features increase the complexity of teaching, but allow development space for environmental design. The course helps students systematically and empirically to learning and to accumulate the basics of environmental design, the basic concepts and ideas of ecological architecture. It helps students to understand and master the application of theory and practice of ecological building design and gradually establish a personalized ecological architectural concept and practice.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      1. To understand the basic concepts and principles of Environmental Design.
      2. To investigate a design problem which requires the integration and resolution of particular environmental control issues, specifically: day lighting & solar control; natural ventilation and thermal performance
      3. To explore the implications of integrating environmental control strategies at the formative stages of a design proposal
      4. Participate in an Environmental Design competition to learn the integrated application of various types of Environmental Design strategies.
