Plus energy houses. ARK 191 Sustainable Building B. Spring semester 2010
This report shows the results of the studio “Sustainable building B“ in the master programme Design for Sustainable Development” given by the dept. of Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. The aim of the studio is to integrate the environmental issues of sustainable building into an architectural project, combining the “traditional” functional qualities with low environmental impact, especially passive housing measures and integration of solar energy. The students have also been expected to take a standpoint whether sustainable architecture needs a new expression.
