Architecture and Energy introduces environmental principles and approaches to energy efficient design as they relate to the built environment. The class will prepare students to understand their physical environment: how elements in the built environment interact to modify both space and climate. The material will be presented to provoke studio design issues and to provide an understanding of the architectural integration of environmentally conscious design strategies. This course offers technical support for the design concepts being developed in PUAD 3010 Architectural Design Studio 3. This course introduces high performance building design concepts. It examines basic physical principles (heat transfer and storage), thermal comfort factors (air temperature, surface temperature, air movement and relative humidity), and design concepts regarding the site and the climate. An in-depth understanding of both passive systems (solar heat gain and passive cooling) and mechanical systems are an essential part of this course.

Open to: Bachelors degree in Architectural Design majors only. Co-requisite(s): PUAD 3010 Design Studio 3.
