Building Systems 1
This course examines environmental management in buildings, and the way humans interact with architecture to achieve comfort, especially in northern contexts. Buildings are studied as integrated systems, including building envelope and service systems. Learning is achieved through systems research and building detail development using digital techniques. Building environmental performance assessment tools, codes and regulations are examined for achieving well-tempered environments as the synthesis of human well-being with energy and resource optimization. PREREQ: ARCH-1306 (lec 3) cr 3. Cannot retain credits for both ARCH-2336 and ARCH-3306.
