Course Objectives 1. To understand and analyze building elements and components.
2. To obtain knowledge about building construction methods.
3. To integrate building elements and components.
Course Description Analysis, design and construction of building elements. External wall systems (walls in contact with atmosphere and ground), window and door systems, floor systems (ground, intermediate and exposed-soffit floors, suspended ceilings, raised floors), vertical circulation systems (ramps and stairs), roof systems (flat and sloping roofs), partition systems (fixed and moveable partitions). Constructional design requirements, performance criteria, resources. Design principles of building element systems, Traditional and advanced construction methods. Application-studio work: Analysis and synthesis of building element systems.
Course Outcomes 1. Technical Documentation: Ability to make technically clear drawings, write outline specifications, and prepare models illustrating and identifying the assembly of materials, systems, and components appropriate for a building design.
2. Investigative Skills: Ability to gather, assess, record, apply, and comparatively evaluate relevant information within architectural coursework and design processes
3. Building Envelope Systems: Understanding of the basic principles involved in the appropriate application of building envelope systems and associated assemblies relative to fundamental performance, aesthetics, moisture transfer, durability, and energy and material resources.
4. Building Materials and Assemblies: Understanding of the basic principles utilized in the appropriate selection of construction materials, products, components, and assemblies, based on their inherent characteristics and performance, including their environmental impact and reuse
