AbstractIn this subject semester, we explore the topic of zero-emission building design, which integrates aspects of energy, materials, technology, human behavior, and comfort into architectural design and seeks synergetic design solutions.
ObjectiveUpon successful completion of the subject semester, students will be able to identify concepts and relevant design parameters for zero-emission building design and develop integrated architectural design strategies. They will know how to select and use appropriate simulation and analysis tools to qualify and quantify their design solutions and will be able to visualize their concepts with both technical schematics and architectural drawings and visualizations.
ContentThe subject semester kicks off with an introduction to the use and exploitation of building systems for the design of zero-emission buildings. The goal of the semester is to demonstrate the relationships between building systems and architecture and to find ways to manifest building systems in design.

Students begin with a research and mapping phase in which they first investigate various building systems for zero-emission building design. They then map the building systems with architectural parameters for successful interaction between the two and create a catalog of their findings.

After the research and mapping phase, students design a small building in which they explore how to maximize the interactions between the building systems and the architectural parameters. Finally, students attempt to quantify their design solutions using low-threshold modeling, simulation, and optimization tools such as Rhino/Grasshopper or HIVE. To assess and discuss their concepts not only numerically but also architecturally and aesthetically, students also find appropriate forms of visualization.

Students document the process and results both numerically and architecturally, which are then discussed with a final jury.

Prerequisites / NoticeThe working mode is an individual design research studio with weekly group meetings and reviews. We expect good basic knowledge of sustainable construction and energy and climate systems. Prior experience in parametric design tools (e.g. Rhino) and/or simulation tools is a plus.

Please note that a student can only register once for a subject semester during the master's program!
