Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso
This course offers an interdisciplinary approach to sustainability in Architecture.  Learners will be introduced to the basic elements of sustainability assessments (first model layer), as well as trends informing the space today. 

The coursework enables students to develop a conceptual neighborhood model for assessing performance and urban policies. 

In the first week, participants will learn to develop a conceptual model from the architectural elements of buildings; the basic building block of which will be the performance of materials. The second week explores methods of optimizing performance. Coursework will detail the needs and constraints inherent in selecting materials and neighborhood urban elements (the second model layer for green, blue and grey infrastructure).

In the third week, learners will develop the basic tools for introducing energy and measuring the potential impact on climate change (CO2). A new layer (third) on our neighborhood stainability model, this will be approached from a global perspective. In the fourth and final week, the course will explore techniques for a joint assessment directly connected to policy issues.
