Microenvironment and Architecture (From villa Tugendhat up to low-energy buildings)
- Department of Microenviromental and Building Services Engineering
The purpose of architectural work ,first of all,is to provide indoor environment of the building for the user-the man. Sometimes this endeavor is not successful-e.g.so called Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)occurs being able to depreciate even the perfect work of art.Objections of medical doctors specialized in hygiene can be added and the usefullness of the building can be problematic.First main architectural building types are presented,then Government Directives of the Czech Republic and international standards dealing with indoor microclimate problems.Special part is devoted to practice:students try to assess indoor climate of a certain architectural type,e.g.of low energetic residental building,medieval church,wooden building,modern air conditioned building.
