Introduction to the basic concepts and principles of design with climate. Exercises development of mental and manual skills to cope with design problems in partnership with nature and climate. Development of visual and physical values for structuring and articulating two and three dimensional spatial compositions in different media with different materials and innovative approaches. Research of IEQ and natural requirements.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
To develop an understanding of interrelationships between nature and human interventions.
To develop an awareness of thematic traditions in site design.
To provide an overview of the history of site design as a potential source for precedent analysis. To develop an ability to observe, document, analyse, and describe site conditions.
To develop an understanding of technical, legal, regulatory and ethical determinants in site design with climate.
To develop an understanding of the relationship between human activities and their accommodation in the landscape. To develop an understanding of the diverse palette of materials employed in site and building design as well as building construction, component or material design.
To develop ability to responsibly and effectively manipulate site conditions within a design scenario.
