|Description:||Theme of the course|
We propose to explore the interaction between geometry and mechanical behaviour of structural systems where the shape of the structure has strong effect on its efficiency. In particular, we will study the basic construction principles of cables, arches and other structures, which are carry their loads via normal forces (tension or compression).
We will apply this knowledge in an architectural design project. The students will design an open-air theatre in Budapest (close to the University on ‘Kopaszi’ dam) with emphasis on the interplay between attractive form, functional values and efficient structural behaviour.
Progress throughout the semester
Thus in the beginning of the course students will get familiar with the tasks and the site in form of presentations and site visits. They also get acquainted with examples, possible structural systems, technologies and possible solutions.
The development/progress of their projects will be presented by the students in form of three open presentations during the seminars. These presentations will be immediately evaluated by the consultants who will discuss the work in public. As the design process goes on students have to document related inspiring buildings, conceptual layout of the environment of the building and its interior and detailed plans of the building with emphasis on the applied structural systems and their geometry.
The seminars not only provide space to collective consultations and presentations but also contain the consultant’s phase-specific presentations which shall improve the development of the work.
The classroom K 222 is available for the students all day on Monday and Wednesday. Note that the door is not locked and other students use the class room on other days. Please arrive no later than at is in the schedule. You will listen to each other’s presentations on every Wednesday. Monday is for consultations, lectures and workshops.
