ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN IN PRACTICE LECTURE SERIES

Architectural Association Technical Studies,TS2

The series of eight lectures titled ‘Environmental Design in Practice’ given as an optional Technical Studies course to 2nd year students concluded for the year. The course aimed to provide students with an intuitive grasp of the underlying principles of environmental design, and the creative opportunities these present in terms of architectural form, materiality, and expression. A key aim of the course was to enthuse and inspire students that environmental concerns can be a generating, rather than a limiting factor in architectural design. Prospectus can be read here. Feed-back from the students was very positive.
