Section of Architectural Technology, Building Physics, Materials and Building Technology

As part of the Department of Architectural Technology and Building Science the Section of Architectural Technology, Building Physics, Materials and Technology explores numerous topics related to the process of design development and the creation of design documentation. Comprising stages ranging from conceptual design to an architectural object or structure, design development is taught in several courses in both the BA and MA programmes. The courses organized by the office are aimed to help develop knowledge, skills and creativity in bringing the conceptual design to its finished stage. In the courses students are introduced to and offered insights into materials and structural elements, their use and integration into a complete building, physical features, principles behind the application of structural systems, basic ways of design and use of contemporary materials and technologies for the purposes of sustainability.
