Environmental Systems and Controls II
The second course in the environmental systems sequence investigates the requirements and functions of building services – mechanical, electrical, and plumbing – and how to effectively integrate them into a building design. The course considers the history of contemporary techniques to better understand their function and evolution, as well as the technologies likely to become available to architects in the future.
Gaining a holistic understanding of active environmental control systems, how they are deployed, and how sustainable design options can be integrated, you will be able to collaborate with consultants to design systems that strengthen architectural intent.
