IEREK believe in the high importance of science and scientific research and ensures that researcher’s practices and theories are applied in the real world by adopting different programs that serve students, researchers, and managers who investigate and research dynamic changes in the quality of life.
IEREK adopts summer school programs for students who are looking for opportunities to increase their strong points in regards to their career path. IEREK welcome all university students (Architecture major) and Architects from different nationalities background.
The School of Architecture, Computing, and Engineering (ACE) offers Architecture programs that are recognizable by their ‘hands-on’ approach to architecture, working with the physical exploration of materials and the processes of site and context. As a counterpart to our preoccupation with the physical environment, the school also has a number of dedicated computer studios which explore more theoretical and virtual models of architecture.
Built environment includes new buildings, existing buildings and the infrastructure that supports them.
Both, the built environment and the infrastructure including transport, water and sewage, waste, green and blue spaces and energy supply consume massive amounts of energy.
This could be reduced at all scales of the built environment from component to building to the neighbourhood to city to the region if planned strategically.
Creating smart environments enhances people’s comfort and wellbeing besides reducing harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the efficient use of resources including energy, water, and waste.
Smart buildings should be designed flexibly to adapt to future needs and growth.
They should also be designed to be resilient to the momentous and rapidly evolving effects of climate change.
In London, high-rise buildings have become a significant part of the urban model in recent decades, an arrangement that is gradually transforming the city to concentrated vertical in an attempt to address rapid urbanization and increased density.
The A+D Design Lab summer course aims to orient and engages the students in the subject of evolving architecture and urbanism, particularly in London; its history, culture, and wealth of relevant case studies from practice.
The theme of Smart Buildings on Critical Territories will be explored in-depth so the students develop a sound knowledge on this subject.
Students will be encouraged and supported to read, develop and articulate connections between interrelated aspects of theory, design experiments and contemporary practice of smart high-rise buildings.
The course aims to develop the student’s confidence and ability to develop design proposals which are critical and thorough and to apply a range of communication methods and media to present their design proposals clearly and effectively.
“London is growing at a record rate and to support the city’s future growth, we need to harness our incredible technical prowess and look to what new approaches and technological innovation can bring.” Mayor of London, 2016
The built environment includes new buildings, existing buildings and the infrastructure that supports them. Both, the built environment and the infrastructure including transport, water and sewage, waste, green and blue spaces and energy supply consume massive amounts of energy. This could be reduced at all scales of the built environment from component to building to neighborhood to city to region if planned ‘Smartly’.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
Knowledge and thinking skills:
Subject-based practical skills:
Skills for life and work (general skills):
