ARCH 6340 - Material Systems and Productions

This seminar will investigate emerging functional materials addressing physical adaptability to environmental and climatic fluctuations. Bio-climatic responsiveness via multi-scale intelligence will be examined from innovations on material simulation systems, low energy/low waste manufacturing, raw material reduction, and material consumption reduction within potential design applications. Design exercises will develop building systems or products that reduce material use, weight, volume, or energy consumption with the goal of increasing the environmental performance of the system. Course taught in New York City.

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
