Introduction to Buildings‘ Design 1

FAST-BH007Acad. year: 2018/2019

Methods of building design with the consideration of an architectural concept - building typology and disposition arrangement requirements. Acceptance of valid standards and regulations. The application of architectural and structural design principles, present economic relations, energy efficiency requirements and environmental demands. Design principles for barrier-free civic buildings and their neighbouring outdoor spaces. Design of residential houses is completed in practical classes.
