TS4 - Sustainable Urban Design

There is a continuing fascination with the tall and super-tall building 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 answer these questions with 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 a chance to apply the principles learned from the course by developing a concept for their own tall building.
