Renewable energy and solar architecture in DAVOS

2017-2018, Bachelor semester 4 – Course details on IS-Academia
Instructors: Lehning Michael, Huwald Wolf Hendrik, Andersen Marilyne, Pastore Luisa, Peronato Giuseppe, Bélanger Philippe, Bunyesc Josep
Laboratories: CRYOS | EFLUM | LIPID | REME

The Semaine ENAC is part of comprehensive efforts in ENAC to increase interdisciplinary teaching and project work. It is intended to bring together second-year students from the three sections that constitute ENAC (Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering) for a weeklong project. One of these projects is hosted by the SLF (WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research) in Davos, where researchers from LIPID teach alongside scientists specializing in Environmental Engineering, Snow Physics, Economics, and Alpine Architecture. In this project, students learn about the complexities of designing and constructing sustainable buildings and renewable energy installations in an alpine environment. Particular attention is paid to environmental concerns like the effect and hazards of snow, cold temperature, availability of sunlight, and the appropriateness of materials. The students also learn about integration into an existing landscape and infrastructure as they are exposed to the needs and resources of the town of Davos and the wider region of Graubunden (Grison). The students are expected to propose and design a comprehensive project that reconciles economic and environmental concerns to ensure its long-term viability. The project emphasizes interdisciplinary teamwork and a holistic view of projects.

UEM

UE ENAC – Space and light : the lighting project

2017-2018, Bachelor semester 6 – Course details on Is-Academia
Instructors: Marilyne Andersen, Bernard Paule
Laboratories: LIPID
More information: Course overview | UEM: The lighting project (Moodle)

This course aims to improve the students’ ability to see, plan and design light in architecture. The approach is to enable students to consider light as a resource that structures a project, and to master its effects so as to better serve architecture. The students are thus asked to understand the basic principles of natural and artificial lighting, and use them to generate a luminous atmosphere as well as specific performance objectives, that must then be tested through the use of appropriate evaluation tools.
This course adopts a technical approach, focused on performance in terms of illumination potential, visual and thermal comfort but within the framework of a global design intent, which also comprises luminous ambiance. It embraces a sustainable perspective, with an integrated approach combining comfort and energy concerns.
