How Buildings Work
Knowledge of how our buildings work is crucial to creating better architecture. Without feedback loops informing architects of the performance of their designs, most buildings become prototypes and the knowledge that could be gained from each building is lost. This course will allow students the opportunity to study, examine and understand in detail the performance of an existing building. This will help develop a perspective for the long term performance of buildings and develop an understanding of buildings as they develop after architects have completed their design. Students may be asked to select an existing building and collect detailed information on performance from users, management, designers and clients, and present a critical analysis to the group.
