Structures 3:Building Systems
This course begins in understanding that Sudbury lies at 46 degrees North latitude and with the premise that 'building' itself can serve as a basis for architectural design. The course continues to increase the knowledge of building systems and environmental performance begun in the Well-Tempered Environment (ARCH 3306) course. Emphasis is placed on building systems integration as students develop an understanding of building performance measurement tools. The approach to systems thinking complements the design work in fourth year design studio. PREREQ: ARCH 3306 (lec, sem, lab) cr 3 (in Technology stream).
