    This course will introduce basic constructional principals through the detailed study of elements of simpler constructional technology. This technology is considered from the point of view of design intent, logic of assembly and the quality of the resulting climate/environment. The course will further challenge the students to analyse the built environment they are familiar with under these themes. The suitability of various forms of construction to different design ambitions will be considered with particular emphasis put on developing an understanding of the size and dimensions of various constructional systems. The course is intended as a foundation course in itself as well as anticipating the information required in the design studio. The course is seminar based with an individual student research component.
