|052-0638-21L||Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) - Workshop |
Only for BSc students from 5th/6th semester and MSc students.
|2 credits||3G||A. Schlüter|
|Abstract||The weeklong workshop will focus on building integrated photovolatics (BiPV). Students will be introduced to theory, methods and tools to support them in developing demonstrator objects in teams in ITA's Robotic Fabrication Lab (RFL). The week program also includes an industry site visit and final presentations.|
|Objective||On successful completion of the course, students will be able to: |
1) explain the principles of BIPV and the relevant aspects of designing with solar materials (e.g. principles of the photovoltaic effect and solar glass properties);
2) assess the effects of the position of the sun, solar irradiance and design choices on PV system performance with basic calculations and tools;
3) fabricate PV demonstrator objects and demonstrate various PV designs
4) explain secondary functions of BIPV and how this relates to conventional construction; and
5) explain environmental benefits and market drivers of BIPV.

|063-0116-21L||Architecture and Building Systems (Thesis Elective)||6 credits||13A||A. Schlüter|
|Abstract||The knowledge gained from the lecture series of Energy and Climate Systems will be applied in this elective course work. Focusing on specific questions, this knowledge will be deepened. Each topic will be individually discussed with each student. Based on the design of studios or other projects, a building will be examined with the goal of emissions-free building operation.|
|Objective||The objectives are to understand the challenges that arise with these aspects of sustainability, to dimension the resulting technical systems and components, and to implement this in architecture.|

|Abstract||Zero Carbon Building Design:|
In this research semester, we address the topic of Zero Emissions Building Design, which integrates aspects of energy, materials and technology, human behaviour and comfort into architectural design, aspiring synergetic design solutions.
|Objective||Zero Carbon Building Design:|
After successfully concluding the research semester students can identify concepts and relevant design parameters for Zero Emissions Building Design and develop integrated architectural design strategies. They know how to select and use appropriate simulation and analysis tools to qualify and quantify their design solutions and visualize their concepts using both technical schematics as well as architectural drawings and visualizations.
|Content||Zero Carbon Building Design:|
First, students will be introduced to core concepts of Zero Emissions Building Design and discuss leading works and examples on a global scale. In combination with excursions and site visits (if possible), a catalogue of criteria and metrics for the development of their integrated design concepts will be developed.
Participants will work on an urban retrofit case study in a moderate climate. The analysis departs at analyzing the site, its climate, the status quo of the building and relevant architectural/urban parameters. After assessing the potentials for reducing energy demand and local renewable energy supply, students will develop integrated design concepts targeting zero carbon over the building lifecycle, both for building operation and construction/materials.
Using low-barrier modelling, simulation and optimization toolsets (preferably Rhino / Grasshopper, HIVE, etc.) the design concepts will be assessed and discussed both numerically as well as architecturally / aesthetically. For further development, students choose one component or aspect central to their design concept.
Students will document the process and the results both numerically as well as architecturally, which then will be discussed with a final jury.
