ARCH 2469 - Building Sciences Media
This course focuses on the investigative methods of gathering and representing the physically measurable phenomena within the built environment as they pertain to material thermal and moisture performance, heat, daylight, air velocity, air quality and sound. Students will be introduced to both handheld instruments and investigative learning sensor kit networks for studying the built environment. Students will learn to visualize digitally information that is taken from “investigative learning kits”. The course will also introduce students to open-source databases of physically measurable phenomena within the built environment. This course is required of all architecture undergraduates in the B.S. in Building Sciences program.
