FUNDAMENTALS OF SUSTAINABLE URBAN DESIGN ACCORDING TO FRIEDMAN

TUESDAY 13 JULY 2021

09:00 - 15:30

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of sustainable urban design (Professional Competency: Architectural Design, Contextual and Urban Relationships).

Fundamental global and local social changes bring about a need to rethink urban design strategies and align them along sustainable principles. Past approaches no longer sustain new demands of innovation. The need for a new outlook is propelled by environmental, social, and economic transformations in large and small communities.

However, it has remained a considerably unknown subject in the arenas of public and policy discourses.

 

The depletion of nonrenewable natural resources, elevated levels of greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change are a few of the environmental challenges. They force urban designers to reconsider conceptual approaches in favor of ones that promote a better suitability between communities and nature.

 

 

Consideration of overall planning concepts that minimize a development’s carbon footprint by including district heating, considering passive solar gain, promoting local renewable energy production, and preserving the site’s natural assets are some strategies that architectural professionals and builders are integrating into their thought process and practice.

This workshop is based on the recently published book: "Fundamentals of Urban Design" by Avi Friedman.

 

​​​​​​​​​DURATION AND CPD:

 

 

The virtual workshop is an one (1) day workshop that will start at 09:00 and end at approximately 15:30.

 

It is validated for 1.5 CPD Category 1 credits for SACAP registered professionals.

VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

WEDNESDAY 14 JULY 2021

09:00 - 15:30

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history and theory regarding vernacular architecture (Professional Competency: Architectural Design, Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

Vernacular architecture is a nineteenth-century invention. As a category of scholarship, its presence has been consolidated in courses and research programmes in the academy in the last two decades of the twentieth century.

 

However, it has remained a considerably unknown subject in the arenas of public and policy discourses.

 

  • What would vernacular architecture for the twenty-first century look like?

  • Will the discussion of it be different or more influential? Will vernacular architecture simply disappear?

  • Or will everything simply be classified as vernacular

 

These are the challenges of vernacular architecture in the twenty-first century and this workshop, based on the book "Vernacular ARchitecture in the Twenty-First Century" edited by Lindsay Asquith and Marcel Vellinga, attempts to address some of them.

 

​​​​​​​​​DURATION AND CPD:

INTERIOR DESIGN À LA FRANCIS D K CHING

MONDAY 26 JULY 2021

09:00 - 15:30

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of interior design as part of architectural design (Professional Competency: Architectural Design).

 

We spend the majority of our lives indoors, in the interior spaces created by the structures and shells of buildings. These spaces provide the physical context for much of what we do and give substance and life to the architecture that houses them.

The goal of interior design education is to prepare, in our case, architectural professionals, to be responsible, well-informed, and skilled to make beautiful, safe, and comfortable spaces that respect the earth and its resources.

 

The field of interior design encompasses both visual and functional design, as well as basic knowledge of building materials, construction, and technology. This workshop on interior design is therefore broad in scope. The intent, nevertheless, is to treat the subject with clarity, make it as accessible as possible, and stimulate further in-depth study and research.

This workshop is based on the book: "Interior Design Illustrated" by Francis D K Ching.

 

​​​​​​​​​DURATION AND CPD:

 

 

The virtual workshop is an one (1) day workshop that will start at 09:00 and end at approximately 15:30.

MESOAMERICAN ARCHITECTURE

FRIDAY 30 JULY 2021

09:00 - 15:30

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural Design, Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

 

Mesoamerican architecture is the set of architectural traditions produced by pre-Columbian cultures and civilizations of Mesoamerica, traditions which are best known in the form of public, ceremonial and urban monumental buildings and structures. The distinctive features of Mesoamerican architecture encompass a number of different regional and historical styles, which however are significantly interrelated.

 

These styles developed throughout the different phases of Mesoamerican history as a result of the intensive cultural exchange between the different cultures of the Mesoamerican culture area through thousands of years. Mesoamerican architecture is mostly noted for its pyramids, which are the largest such structures outside of Ancient Egypt.

One interesting and widely researched topic is the relation between cosmovision, religion, geography, and architecture in Mesoamerica. Much seems to suggest that many traits of Mesoamerican architecture were governed by religious and mythological ideas. For example, the layout of most Mesoamerican cities seem to be influenced by the cardinal directions and their mythological and symbolic meanings in Mesoamerican culture.

Another part of Mesoamerican architecture is its iconography. The monumental architecture of Mesoamerica was decorated with images of religious and cultural significance, and also in many cases with writing in some of the Mesoamerican writing systems. Iconographic decorations and texts on buildings are important contributors to the overall current knowledge of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican society, history and religion.

This workshop will provide information about the architecture of the Inca, Maya and Aztec.

VITRUVIUS AND HIS TEN BOOKS ON ARCHITECTURE

TUESDAY 10 AUGUST 2021

09:00 - 15:30

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history and theory (Professional Competency:  Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

De architectura (On architecture, published as Ten Books on Architecture) is a treatise on architecture written by the Roman architect and military engineer Marcus Vitruvius Pollio and dedicated to his patron, the emperor Caesar Augustus, as a guide for building projects.

 

As the only treatise on architecture to survive from antiquity, it has been regarded since the Renaissance as the first book on architectural theory, as well as a major source on the canon of classical architecture.

 

It contains a variety of information on Greek and Roman buildings, as well as prescriptions for the planning and design of military camps, cities, and structures both large (aqueducts, buildings, baths, harbours) and small (machines, measuring devices, instruments).

 

Since Vitruvius published before the development of cross vaulting, domes, concrete, and other innovations associated with Imperial Roman architecture, his ten books give no information on these hallmarks of Roman building design and technology.

Each of Ten Books on Architecture, a must-read for all architectural professionals, will be  discussed during this workshop

​​​​​​​​​DURATION AND CPD:

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ARCHITECTURE

MONDAY 16 AUGUST 2021

via

GO-TO-WEBINAR

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

Spanning over two thousand years, ancient Egypt was not one stable civilization but in constant change and upheaval, commonly split into periods by historians. Likewise, ancient Egyptian architecture is not one style, but a set of styles differing over time but with some commonalities.

The best-known example of ancient Egyptian architecture is the Egyptian pyramids while excavated temples, palaces, tombs, and fortresses have also been studied.

 

Most buildings were built of locally available mud brick and limestone by levied workers. Monumental buildings were built via the post and lintel method of construction. Many buildings were aligned astronomically. Columns were typically adorned with capitals decorated to resemble plants important to Egyptian civilization, such as the papyrus plant.

This workshop will include ancient Egyptian architecture from the mastaba to the hypostyle temples.
