Theme of the course
The theme of the course is to design an energetically "passive" office building situated in a challenging city plot on the western slope of the Buda Castle Hill (Budapest; 1st district). We try to attain and correspond to architectural quality while designing with an emphasis of utilization passive and active solar systems by orientation of the building, optimizing unnecessary winter heat losses and summer gains.

Progress throughout the semester
The course will be held in a workshop style. Students’ work will be accompanied by consultants of both departments. Students will have to complete their tasks in groups of 3 students.
Thus in the beginning of the course students are going to get familiar with the tasks and the site in form of presentations and site visits. They also get acquainted with examples of renewable energy sources possible systems, technologies and solutions. The project will include paper model building and the continuous control of the building envelope with heat loss calculations.

The development/progress of their projects will be presented by the students in form of four 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 renewable energy sources. 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.
