Building Envelope has a dual role of protecting from the elements and establishing form and imagery of the building. In terms of Walls as well as roof the envelope protects the building from Climatic elements like Sun, Wind, Rain, Sand storm, Heat, etc. Contemporary materials and techniques of Facade design help create varied aesthetics of the building and establish a technologically prominent imagery in terms of Architecture. Technical precision in designing the facade of a building helps in reducing energy needed for cooling the building in the tropical world. This workshop explores different techniques of facade design and develops them in terms of static as well as dynamic elements forming a responsive envelope.
The workshop concentrates on understanding thermal gain and losses in a building and resolving the issue of overheating of the builtform. Workshop identifies unwanted sun directions and facade systems that help cut off the solar ingrace.
Design knowledge of Static as well as Dynamic facades would help professionals develop better understanding regarding climate responsive architecture.
This is a 12 session program for students and tutors to engage with the three critical nodes of creative learning and teaching: COGNITIVE DILIGENCE, SOCIAL INTEGRATION & EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE. The course is an introduction to the facilitation of learning – whether for oneself or for others – by regulating emotions, sustaining imagination and inculcating the discipline of reflection.
Though references, exercises in text, graphics, collage & theater and volumes of conversations, the course will help participants create, collaborate and reflect.
