Sustainability Lab

  • Lecturer
    • Muck Petzet
 

In the Lab 2017 we will engage with the holistic ‒ and very new ‒ Swiss certification system for sustainable architecture NNBS. We will try to understand and apply its concepts and methodology and question the sense and consequences of certification systems and labels in general. What will it mean to be an architect in an increasingly regulated ˮsustainable“ future? How are the concepts to achieve sustainability in architecture already influencing our work? What can we learn for our design practice? The course will alternate between lectures and practical application in tasks ‒ aiming to develop a connection between the theoretical course and the work in the design studios.
