Class Constructive Systems IV

  • Presentation


    It is intended with this UC, that the student will learn: the elements that make up a project, the anatomy of a construction and its connections, following the learning of the previous semester; learn the contemporary, common and vernacular construction processes; current placement on site and what materials to use in its various elements, according to the intended objectives. Trinomium: efficiency, beauty and durability, allowing students to understand the consequences of constructive options in architectural design.

    Types of building structures in the various masonry and materials. The importance of representation in construction details
    and its coherence with the Architectural object; the Expressiveness and communication of the execution Project

  • Code


  • Syllabus


    • Apparent materials in construction: Brick; Stone; Concrete; Wood; Plasters and others and their significance in the conceptual understanding of an architectural object.
    • Approach to the construction works: Timing and understanding of the different phases of the construction site;
    • Humidity, Sun, Temperature and physical and chemical phenomena to be considered;
    • Construction insulation and its application in wall and roof systems
    • Light structure walls on the outside and inside. Ventilated walls with external insulation and ETIC's.Dimensioning of wall thickness;
    • Independent facades and ventilated facades made of glass and other materials. Skins in buildings;
    • Deepening of flat roofing techniques - extensive and intensive green roofs;
    • Type of materials and sections most suitable to be applied in finishes and in the various details of the construction work;
    • Detailing of materials for interiors and exteriors; sections and finishes; scales and dimensions of the various details.
  • Objectives


    Students will have sufficient knowledge of the various materials to start conducting their studies and design concepts and have a sense of what they should use where they are used and how they are used and to understand what architecture is.


    They will know the combination of basic legislation with creativity and that architecture is not just design and form, but a set of disciplines, means and also rules for successfully completing a program.


    The advantage of the outline and the intermediate phases before the final project and the representation of the construction details and its coherence with the Architectural object, as well as the importance of the expressiveness and communication of the execution project
