  Course Description
Explores and synthesizes environmental systems for a design studio project, or investigates how these systems operate in an existing building as part of a semester-long project. Analyzes and examine how design criteria vary with factors like geography, climate, and construction type to develop evaluative measures. Using modeling or digital forensics tools, develop hypotheses based on these conditions to evaluate potential solutions for systems like active and passive heating and cooling, solar geometry, daylighting, natural ventilation, indoor air quality, solar systems, lighting, and/or acoustics. Upon conclusion of the course, students develop convincing representations of systems function to demonstrate how their decisions could be integrated with other building systems, including structural and thermal envelopes. Considers impacts on environmental building systems design, including form, structure, and material. Involves lecture, discussions, and fieldwork.
