ETS4 - Environmental Engineering of Tall Buildings

There is an ongoing fascination with the tall and super tall buildings that define the evolving skylines of the world’s major cities. But can they contribute to a more sustainable future and what role does environmental engineering play in the design of these towering structures? The course aims to address these questions whilst imparting the fundamental knowledge needed to design tall. We will consider tall buildings in an urban context, the strategic considerations defining form, the impact of climate, the environmental drivers affecting form and fabric, servicing strategies and various approaches to low energy and sustainable design. Students will have the chance to apply the principles learned from the course by developing a concept for their own tall building.
