Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

... reflect the basics of healthy, climate-adapted construction;

... evaluate ecological building products and building constructions;

... explain the production of different materials and constructions (e.g. insulation materials, recycled building materials, constructions made of straw, clay etc.) and

... define the different types of facade and roof greening and assess their functionality.

Subject of course

Climate change and its associated consequences represent one of the greatest global challenges of the present and the future. The building industry in particular plays a major role here, as it is responsible for around 40% of emissions, 40% of final energy consumption, and the majority of resource consumption and waste production. Climate protection can therefore only work if the ecologization of the building sector progresses.

The course "Ecological BuildingTechnologies 1" teaches students the basics of ecological and health impacts of conventional construction as well as basic functionalities and technologies of climate-adapted and ecological construction. The content of the course is presented frontally as well as discussed interactively with the students. The lectures are complemented by an exercise in which students visit a building or housing unit on their own and analyse it from an ecological point of view using a protocol.

Teaching methods

Lectures on various topics related to ecological building with interactive elements. The lectures are held in person at the TU Wien.
