ARK415 - Design and performance optimization for buildings

The aim of the course is to deepen the skills in the use of advanced simulation tools for the integrated performance optimisation of an architectural design project. A design problem is provided in the form of a building case study each year. These are usually buildings for work and activities, such as offices and other places for work, where specific requirements like generality, flexibility, optimization systems for climate and energy can be formulated. The architectural design will be based on and driven by knowledge gained using simulation tools early in the design process.
