Prerequisites
Traditional building construction systems. Distributive characters. Representation of the construction project.
Learning outcomes
The course aims to bring students to the knowledge of building systems for energy saving and exploitation (active and passive) of renewable energy sources. The goal is to provide methodological guide lines for the design and construction aware of the characteristics of the context.
Course contents
The course is divided into lessons and exercises aimed to design using the methods and construction techniques explored during the lectures. The theme of the project will be defined each year.

Regulatory framework relating to sustainable design and cultural
Introduction to the theme of sustainable design, with a theoretical framework and regulatory environment. Evolution of the design and the new demands of energy conservation and savings in the use of non-renewable resources. Dissemination of practical exploitation of renewable resources. The sustainability over the reuse and redevelopment in the building.

Active and passive use of solar energy
Active use of solar energy. Passive use of solar energy. Active and Passive Systems integration into the building envelope. System interactions with the plant building.

Natural Ventilation
General principles. Applications of systems to enhance natural ventilation. Architectural integration of ventilation systems. Integrated design solutions with the plant building.

Green Systems for roof and facade
Extensive green roofs. Intensive green roofs. Green facades.

Sustainable solutions and functional destination
Sustainability and single-family housing. Sustainability and multi-family housing. Sustainability and hospitals. Sustainability and schools. Sustainability and buildings for offices.
