  SUSTAINABILITY AND BUILDING MATERIALS

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2013-14

  • Los materiales de construcción son la sustancia con la que la arquitectura toma cuerpo. Son imprescindibles y forman parte de los recursos necesarios para generar y hacer uso de los productos arquitectónicos.
  • Así, tanto como integrantes de lo construido, como por si mismos, son elementos con alta incidencia en la posibilidad de conseguir un desarrollo sostenible, por lo que es conveniente conocerlos, elegirlos, ponerlos en obra y desecharlos con plena responsabilidad.
  • Consecuentemente, los contenidos de la asignatura versan sobre el papel que desempeñan los materiales de construcción en el logro de una arquitectura y desarrollo sostenibles, y la incidencia de los propios materiales en la sostenibilidad durante todo el periodo que abarca  su ciclo de vida. Y abordan la manera en que puede contribuirse al logro del desarrollo sostenible desde la adecuada gestión de los materiales de construcción.

 

 

Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)

General Competences (CG)

  • G1 : Understand the scientific method by carrying out experimental tasks that follow the different stages explicitly: observation, analysis and data gathering, evaluation, comparison of results and conclusions. Capacity to use the scientific method to carry out research.
  • G10 : Capacity to relate and group the different factors involved in Architecture and Town Planning, paying attention to their types and possibilities, recognising the social, cultural, artistic and architectural values of the same.
  • G2 : Capacity to study, understand and objectively criticise scientific-technical databases and publications.
  • G3 : Understand, master and be able to propose new legislation needed for research and carrying out one's professional activities in the field of sustainable architecture and town planning.
  • G4 : Understand the multiple technical, legal and property ownership conditioning factors that arise in the different fields of architecture and the ability to establish valid alternatives, choose the best and put it into practice effectively, predicting problems and using the most appropriate methods and technologies to ensure maximum effectiveness and favour progress and the development of a sustainable, environmentally-friendly society.
  • G5 : Capacity to analyse, evaluate and innovate in architectural work from the point of view of sustainability.
  • G6 : Capacity to develop sustainability in architectural and town planning projects.
  • G8 : Capacity to transfer and apply scientific methods to academic, professional and research work, as well as propose new ways of working in the field of Architecture and Town Planning.
  • G9 : Capacity to gather and interpret significant data to give opinions that include critical and innovative reflection.

 

Specific Competences (CE)

  • E16 : Understand and master the concept of sustainability in the field of architecture.
  • E17 : Entendimiento de la necesidad de adoptar prácticas de diseño, constructivas, de mantenimiento, de utilización y deconstructivas más sostenibles.
  • E18 : Capacity to implement greater sustainability in the design, building, use and discard process of Architecture.
  • E19 : Understand the criteria for sustainable building development in harmony with the environment.
  • E20 : Understand the concept of sustainability with reference to building materials and the importance of using available local materials.
  • E21 : Understand the use-durability ratio of building elements.
  • E30 : Understand the characteristics that different building systems of traditional architecture should have to work correctly.
  • E31 : Understand the most sustainable minimum intervention building systems.
  • E32 : Capacity to take action on the architectural heritage with sustainability criteria.
  • E33 : Capacity to take action on historical nuclei without loss of heritage and/or cultural, social or ethnic identity of the location.
  • E34 : Understand bioclimate techniques for climate control and energy saving.
  • E35 : Capacity to propose current building solutions based on one's knowledge of traditional systems by using sustainable procedures related with the manufacture of new elements and the elimination of their waste.
  • E36 : Ability to solve passive environmental climate control and understand the need to prioritise this system making passive use of the materials and systems that make up the building.
