- Department of Construction Engineering I
Architectural construction denotes the visible, exposed architecture. The main aim of the subejct is to provide deep knowledge of facade structures. All important contemporary materials and structures of the building envelope are discussed. The assessment of students´results is influenced by their active work on some study alternatives of curtain and concrete-element facades.
- Syllabus of lectures:
1.Introduction, examples of previous work. 2. Physical requirements on facades. 3. New types of wooden elements. 4. New types of stone and ceramics elements. 5. Architectural concrete. 6. Concrete cladding - function, systems. 7. -shapes and structure of elements. 8. -details, fixing. 9.
