Summary

This class offers an overview about comfort evaluations in architectural design and suggests passive and low-energy strategies suited to ensure the highest possible indoor environment quality for buildings.

Content

Keywords

Comfort in buildings, passive architecture, building simulation.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Integrate comfort and energy requirements in the design process.
  • Analyze integration constraints in the architecture project.
  • Propose passive architectural measures to ensure/improve indoor comfort.
  • Choose and use adequate simulation tools to quantitatively evaluate energy performance and comfort of a design project.

Assessment methods

After the individual exercise, a written report (due at mid-term) is required. Weight: 20%.

The final exam consists of a report and an oral presentation. Weight: 80%.
