EDAD401 Integrated Systems 3 cr.

Students explore strategies for enclosing buildings and examine how to integrate the building enclosure with its surrounding environment including framing, climate modification, and building services systems.  Using their design from a prior studio as the basis for developing building enclosure systems, students research and explore multiple building service/ environmental systems that compliment their design in a sustainable context. This exploration includes how to evaluate, select and coordinate the structural framing and commonly used building service and environmental systems in association with the building envelope and it’s details.  Students use their projects to gain knowledge of these systems as well as discover how to coordinate the interface between dissimilar enclosure systems.
