About this Unit
Integrated Building Technology is a core unit in the Master of Architecture (Urban Transformation) course that will introduce students to the range of specialist consultants in structural and civil engineering, mechanical, electrical, communications, and transport systems, fire safety and egress, and environmental systems (acoustics, lighting, thermal) that are required to complete real projects in practice. Students gain an insight into the principles and concepts of each discipline which provides sufficient depth of knowledge and understanding of the role of the architect to meaningfully engage and collaborate with the allied specialists. Understanding how to communicate and document the integration and coordination of systems in a building is developed through exposure to case studies, specialist presentations, and field trips. Students apply concepts introduced in the unit to the design studio project they are concurrently developing in unit Practice Research Studio Housing and demonstrate their understanding of system integration through graphic representation techniques and a design report.
