This course will introduce central theories, concepts and models related to the scientific field of Industrialised Architecture based on sustainable strategies. These are based on a series of research projects executed in CINARK (Centre of Industrialised Architecture), that deal with the architectural and sustainable implications of advanced material technology, new computerised design and manufacturing tools, industrialised construction processes including pre-fab solutions and mass customization.
The course offers online lectures and additional course material in the form of exercises, self evaluation feedback forms and lists of relevant literature. The students are presented to the following issues:
References to current examples of PhD work and Industrial PhD work within the scientific realm of Industrialised Architecture.
- The theoretical framework of industrialised architecture, including historical references, scientific concepts and tectonic strategies.
- General research methodologies and models for analysis Ė the latter extracted from practise based research.
