InduCity Summer School
Inducity Summer School
Organized by the chair of Architecture & Sustainable Building Technologies, Prof. Dr. Arno Schlüter and the chair of Architecture and Urban Design, Prof. Kees Christiaanse the "InduCity Summer School" invites students of architecture and urbanism from both the ETH Zürich and EPF Lausanne to participate in a 10-day design studio to envision a sustainable urban transformation of an Industrial Area in Zug.
What effects do future building technologies have on architecture and how can sustainable systems be fluidly integrated into an architectural concept?
The yearly Adaptive Solar Envelope Workshop introduces students to concepts of adaptive systems and their potential in sustainable design of building components.
The Integrated Discipline focuses on practice and implementation of sustainable technologies in specific design tasks for architecture and urban planning.
Integrated Discipline Focal Work
Architectural concepts are more and more influenced by sustainability seen as one of the different parameters for a unique building design.
The thesis elective offers the opportunity to research a topic selected by the student within the realm of sustainable building design.
As a consequence of climate change, we need to adapt the way we live to the new age. For architects this means reducing the impact buildings have on the climate by rethinking the supply and the consumption of the building.
