The goal of the course Enviromental Design is to understanding of the principles, strategies and analytic techniques of environmental design to real world design problems and booth urban and individual building scales

11 weeks (3 days/week)+ thematic seminars and workshops

The course goal is to apply an understanding of the principles, strategies and analytic techniques of environmental design to real world design problems at both the urban and individual building scales.

A key objective is to embed evidence-based environmental design thinking within the design process. Students have the opportunity to apply this approach to the critical evaluation of casestudy projects and of their own proposals.

The final design exercise contributes to the focus on current projects developed by Consortium Members.

In the project phase, the design development is based on environmental performance targets. In addition, a series of thematic workshops and seminars are organized to address specific project objectives, including the selection of material and components according to environmental criterias, the exploitation of renewable energy sources and techniques for water and waste management.

Additional thematic workshops and seminars to be selected according to project objectives
