(English-taught semester) Integrated Building Design and Construction
Lectures and workshops on (sustainable) construction technology and advanced CAAD, along with an independent study in the field of recent architecture or construction management, are supporting and facilitating the main assignment of the semester: the integrative project in the Architectural Design Studio. You will work in an international team, simulating a real life architecture studio working on a design for an architecture contest. Your design will creatively integrate your knowledge of architectural technology, construction and sustainability. Coached by engineers and architects, this practicum experience will develop your personal design skills and deepen your knowledge of building sciences, as well as improve your co-operation and communication skills.
Besides, you will build your own outstanding portfolio and get acquainted with Belgian and Flemish culture.
