Consideration of Climate Change Effects in Architectural Education
As the concerns for the environment and energy-efficiency (EE) emerged on the world scale, teaching in the field of anthropogenic world climate change (CC) effects became one of the key-components in contemporary educational programs. This paper presents an architectural course, based on the building physics and technology that applies two proposed techniques: climate change survey (CCS), which is founded on managing weather data (WD) and identifying CC effects, and the climate change response (CCR), which is a synthesis tool for the building performance simulation (BPS) modelling process. Regarding the pedagogical concept, the consideration should be given to the application of the proposed advanced active teaching model (AATM), which incorporates the problem-based learning (PBL), think-pair-share (TPS) and critical thinking (CT) methods. Using an active teaching approach, the aim of the course is to build among students a coherent multidisciplinary knowledge basis for use of CC analytical techniques in architectural design (AD) process.
