W2 KP2GP. Block, J. Schwartz
KurzbeschreibungDer Kurs ist eine Einführung in den Entwurf von Tragwerken anhand von grafischen Methoden und Strukturmodellen, mit dem Schwerpunkt auf einer kreativen Herangehensweise und nicht sich wiederholenden Berechnungen. Seil- und Membrantragwerke, Bogen- und Schalentragwerke und kombinierte Bogen-Seil-Tragwerke werden dazu benutzt, um diese Methoden zu demonstrieren.
LernzielDas Ziel ist es, die Studenten zu ermutigen ein intuitives Verständnis der Beziehung zwischen der Form einer Struktur, den zu tragenden Lasten und den in der Struktur wirkenden Kräften zu entwickeln. Um das zu erreichen, basiert die Lehre auf der grafischen Statik, welche die Darstellung der internen und externen Kräfte von Tragwerken erlaubt, und dadurch die Beziehung von Form (Geometrie) und Belastung (Kraft) in tragenden Elementen illustriert.
InhaltNach einer allgemeinen Einführung von grundlegenden Konzepten, werden Tragwerke wie zum Beispiel Seil- und Bogenstrukturen mit Hilfe der grafischen Statik analysiert. Die Studenten sollen die Beziehung zwischen dem Kräfteverlauf in einem Tragwerk und seiner Form verstehen lernen. Sie werden in der Lage sein diesen Kräfteverlauf zu modifizieren und die Tragwerkselemente zu dimensionieren.

Alle Konzepte, Herangehensweisen und Methoden werden in den wöchentlichen Vorlesungen eingeführt und in den anschliessenden Übungen vertieft.

363-0389-00LTechnology and Innovation Management Information O3 KP2GS. Brusoni
KurzbeschreibungThis course focuses on the analysis of innovation as a pervasive process that cut across organizational and functional boundaries. It looks at the sources of innovation, at the tools and techniques that organizations deploy to routinely innovate, and the strategic implications of technical change.
LernzielThis course intends to enable all students to:

- understand the core concepts necessary to analyze how innovation happens

- master the most common methods and tools organizations deploy to innovate

- develop the ability to critically evaluate the innovation process, and act upon the main obstacles to innovation
InhaltThis course looks at technology and innovation management as a process. Continuously, organizations are faced with a fundamental decision: they have to allocate resources between well-known tasks that reliably generate positive results; or explore new ways of doing things, new technologies, products and services. The latter is a high risk choice. Its rewards can be high, but the chances of success are small.
How do firms organize to take these decisions? What kind of management skills are necessary to take them? What kind of tools and methods are deployed to sustain managerial decision-making in highly volatile environments? These are the central questions on which this course focuses, relying on a combination of lectures, case-based discussion, guest speakers, simulations and group work.

101-0577-00LAn Introduction to Sustainable Development in the Built EnvironmentW3 KP2GG. Habert
KurzbeschreibungIn 2015, the UN Conference in Paris shaped future world objectives to tackle climate change.
in 2016, other political bodies made these changes more difficult to predict.
What does it mean for the built environment?
This course provides an introduction to the notion of sustainable development when applied to our built environment
LernzielAt the end of the semester, the students have an understanding of the term of sustainable development, its history, the current political and scientific discourses and its relevance for our built environment.

In order to address current challenges of climate change mitigation and resource depletion, students will learn a holistic approach of sustainable development. Ecological, economical and social constraints will be presented and students will learn about methods for argumentation and tools for assessment (i.e. life cycle assessment).

For this purpose an overview of sustainable development is presented with an introduction to the history of sustainability and its today definition as well as the role of cities, urbanisation and material resources (i.e. energy, construction material) in social economic and environmetal aspects.

The course aims to promote an integral view and understanding of sustainability and describing different spheres (social/cultural, ecological, economical, and institutional) that influence our built environment.

Students will acquire critical knowledge and understand the role of involved stakeholders, their motivations and constraints, learn how to evaluate challenges, identify deficits and define strategies to promote a more sustainable construction.

After the course students should be able to define the relevance of specific local, regional or territorial aspects to achieve coherent and applicable solutions toward sustainable development.

The course offers an environmental, socio-economic and socio-technical perspective focussing on buildings, cities and their transition to resilience with sustainable development. Students will learn on theory and application of current scientific pathways towards sustainable development.
InhaltThe following topics give an overview of the themes that are to be worked on during the lecture.

- Overview on the history and emergence of sustainable development
- Overview on the current understanding and definition of sustainable development

Methods
- Method 1: Life cycle assessment (planning, construction, operation/use, deconstruction)
- Method 2: Life Cycle Costing
- Method 3: Labels and certification

Main issues:
- Operation energy at building, urban and national scale
- Mobility and density questions
- Embodied energy for developing and developed world

- Synthesis: Transition to sustainable development
SkriptAll relevant information will be online available before the lectures. For each lecture slides of the lecture will be provided.
LiteraturA list of the basic literature will be offered on a specific online platform, that could be used by all students attending the lectures.
