6cp; 4hpw: lectures and tutorials
Requisite(s): 11225 Thermal Design and Environmental Control
These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses. See access conditions.



The subject aims to deepen students' understanding of the principles of lighting acoustics and environmental control in the context of medium rise and complex architecture and seeks to equip students with the ability to design and modify the building fabric through analysis and evaluation to enhance the environmental performance of designed spaces. It encompasses advanced daylighting systems and the integration of electrical lighting, strategies for noise management, room acoustics, hybrid ventilation and mixed mode systems as well as an introduction to alternate and sustainable building energy systems. Qualitative and quantitative evaluative and analytical processes that inform such design decisions are explored in this subject.
