About this course

This course introduces students to the three core TS branches (structures, environment and materials) and shows that they are not separate realities but in fact different lenses for looking at the built environment. Students will explore four spaces in London in order to understand integrated structural, material and environmental effects in architecture. Through critical and creative thinking, students will activate a series of structural, environmental and material manipulations of these spaces and analyse and evaluate these outcomes in relation to the other technical aspects. Through iterative modelling, students will gain understanding of the basic principles associated with structures, environment and materials, understand their relations while exploring how TS can inform the design process and how a model can form a testing ground. The course is supplemented by a series of lectures.
