Module code


This module explores the relationship between architectural form and the internal environment through the design development of a simple building enclosure, supported by a lecture programme which introduces the basic principles of environmental design, in relation to material specification, structural form and the relationship between construction methods, programme, materials and cost. Students will further develop existing communication skills, design methods and their basic understanding of how buildings are constructed, understanding the articulation of space, structure and envelope in relation to environmental strategies.
