Climate Friendly Buildings - Then and Now

17 - 28 July 2017
Vienna, Austria

In this course you will learn about the interaction between outdoor and indoor climate and its impact to the building's shape, material, energy and user. You will be able to analyse the thermal functionality of buildings, new and existing ones, and high-tec, low-tech and no-tech. During the project you will experience the integrated design approach for the thermal and ecological optimisation building. After the winter school you should be sensitised for the wisdom that lies in our built tradition and be motivated to find energy sufficient solutions for the buildings of the future.
