The ambition of this lecture course is to provide a theoretical and historical background to the current interrogations regarding the impact of sustainability. It will promote a different approach to architectural issues in which questions pertaining to the interior, to ambiances and to the relation between built objects and environmental issues will play a central role. Topics covered will include the evolution of the conception of the interior from the Renaissance to the present; the history of light, sound and heat in architecture; the importance of air in architectural design; the rise of environmental concerns; the history of thermodynamics; insulation; systems theory; and their impact on architectural theory and practice.
This event is not open to the public. Please contact the speaker for further information about the talk.
