Ulrik Stylsvig Madsen, Assistant professor/PhD, Architect MAA

2 ECTS

Description of content of the Course:

This course will introduce central theories, concepts and models related to the

scientific field of Industrialised Architecture based on sustainable strategies. These are

based on a series of research projects executed in CINARK (Centre of Industrialised

Architecture), that deal with the architectural and sustainable implications of

advanced material technology, new computerised design and manufacturing tools,

industrialised construction processes including pre-fab solutions and mass

customization.

The course offers discussions and additional course material in the form of exercises,

self evaluation feedback forms and lists of relevant literature. The students are

presented to the following issues:

1. The theoretical framework of industrialised architecture, including historical

references, scientific concepts and tectonic strategies.

2. General research methodologies and models for analysis – the latter extracted

from practise based research.
