ETS4 - Studies in Advanced Structural Design

Structures are complex systems providing strength, stiffness and stability to buildings. Architects need to understand structural principles in order to design buildings that respond to challenging design briefs and site constraints. This course will build upon the knowledge developed during previous structures courses and apply it to real projects, class exercises and workshops.The objective of the course is to develop the ability of the students to apply the knowledge developed during previous structures courses and consolidate it with several hands-on workshops and exercises.The overall goal of the course is to develop the students’ technical ability and encourage creative thinking. Students will increase their understanding of structural first principles and, therefore will better prepared during development of their designs for other courses or in their future professions.
