Wind, noise and water

Course week(s) Week 1
Course subject(s) 2. Wind, noise and water

Wind and noise are always paramount factors in the calculation of design projects. Lecture 2a will therefore go into the various forms these take and how a design can successfully adapted to them.

Lecture 2b explores the threats and opportunities water in the world offers en goes into artifacts specifically dedicated to alter or control the force of water. Main focus lies on Dutch planning projects, who have a long history in dealing with the problem of water-control.

Publish on your website:

  • a report with text, schemes, images and calculations how you could use your knowledge of the subject in your future design practice.
  •  make all calculations, improving them and adding new ones, in earlier and future design.
