In contemporary building design, sustainability has emerged as a fundamental element. With the growing urgency of climate change and limited resources, the imperative to create buildings that prioritize minimal environmental impact and maximize human comfort has also intensified. Sustainable building can make a crucial contribution in this regard.
But what defines a sustainable building and how can a building be designed in a sustainable way? The course provides both theoretical and practical learning materials to address this question.
Participants will acquire general knowledge and skills in the fields of sustainable building and building performance simulations. They will be able to gain a deeper understanding of the interactions between various factors when designing or conducting evidence-based analyses of a building’s sustainability.
Main course components:
- Principles of Sustainable buildings
- Future trends, chances and aims of sustainability by buildings
- Functional and aesthetical quality of buildings
- Systems for environment friendly energy supply
- Thermal comfort and indoor air quality
- Fundamentals of Building Performance Simulations
- Simulative analysis of buildings
The entire course, including the first two weeks covering the theoretical segment, and the subsequent two weeks of collaborative work on small-scale projects with supervision from lecturers, will take place in Berlin.
Furthermore, there will be three excursions in Berlin, where attendees will experience real-life examples of sustainable buildings and plants.
