Integrated Discipline

The Integrated Discipline focuses on practice and implementation of sustainable technologies in specific design tasks for architecture and urban planning.

 

Radical Sustainability

In the fall semester 2010 this course was carried out with five students in the Urban Laboratory on the Edge: Radical Sustainability design studio, led by Prof. Dr. Marc Angélil: In one of the most dynamically developing areas of Zürich - around the Altstetten train station - on the basis of architectural projects, issues of sustainable urban development at the local scale were discussed. Strategies for the densification and mixing of the quarter were developed and tested on the basis of selected interventions. In this context the creative potential of traditional sustainability criteria was investigated by 25 students developing integrated sustainable design projects.
