Director: Javier García-Germán.


This course considers the discussion on thermodynamics and sustainability as an opportunity for architecture and urbanism to rethink its traditional apparatus: structure (spatial structure and built systems), performance (climate and use through time) and its connections and exchanges with the environment. The aim of the course is to merge the scientific and technical knowledge with its cultural contextualization; these two tracks, the technological and the theoretical, will crisscross throughout the course to transmit a critical perspective on energy and sustainability that can propel effective applications on design.
