FAADE DESIGN MASTER

A growing complexity of design and building processes require increased specialisation of important areas of architecture. Within this context, facade planning as an integral part of the overall architectural process, plays a major role. Not only because the facade coins the perception and design of architecture, but also because it needs to fulfill extremely high technological and functional demands. With its holistic approach, the International Faade Master offers ideal advanced education for individual positioning and future-oriented specialisation within the field of architecture.
Marco Hemmerling
(Prof. at Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Design, member of design team UN Studio)

Faades are one of the most technically challenging, complex and multidisciplinary parts of a building. A faade defines not only a buildings appearance and its architectural expression, but also how well it functions. The success of a building is measured in terms of its technical functionality with regard to comfort, safety, pleasant ambience and sustainability. Hereby, faades play an important role and thus, have to fulfill several technical and architectural demands and functions related to a broad range of aspects and engineering disciplines. In view of this fascinating and multidisciplinary context, the Faade Design Program at TU Delft Faculty of Architecture - Department of Building Technology - will teach MSc candidates how to design and develop faade structures on an academic level. Key topics are energy consumption and sustainability, typology, materialization, fabrication and assembly of faades. Faade Research Group The education is strongly interconnected with the research and practical applications of the Faade Research Group (part of chair DOC). Link to practice Due to the cooperation, knowledge and re-

search exchange with the VMRG (Dutch Faade Builder Association), the KCG (Knowledge Centre of the Dutch faade industry) and several related faade manufacturers (Oskomera Group and Scheldebouw/Permasteelisa), students also benefit from close links with professional practice. International network Within the Faade Design Program the Faculty of Architecture also works with partner universities in Germany (Detmolder Schule fr Architektur) and Switzerland (Luzerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts). As a student, you can benefit from these international contacts, for example, by participating in international symposia and workshops. Careers The Faade Design Program is one of the two specialization areas of the general MSc Building Technology track. MSc graduates in Building Technology with the specialization Faade Design might find a career as either a technical generalist or a faade specialist at architecture or engineering firms, in the faade or supply industry, or project development sectors. You may also choose to start your own business or

MASTER PROGRAM
The Faade Design Program is one of the two specializations of the MSc Building Technology track at Delft University of Technology. The other specialization is Research & Design, which focuses on materials, climate and sustainability or product development. The Building Technology track, consisting of these two specializations, focuses on the innovative and sustainable design of elements, components and (sub)systems of building structures; on how these relate to each other and to the architecture of the building. In addition to this track the Department of Building Technology of the TU/ Faculty of Architecture also offers the specialization Architectural Engineering. This specialization focuses on architecture and engineering as the inseparably linked basis for building design. First year Both the Building Technology tracks (Faade Design and Research & Development) and the Architectural Engineering specialization share a common base in the first year. During this year a wide range of theory and integrated design components are covered related to different disciplines such as mechanics, product development, material science, building physics, compuScheme of Msc track Building Technology and Architectural Engineering

tation and modeling and production techniques. In the first semester, Component & System design focuses on system development of a faade in the context of a building design. Students start the design process by developing an innovative concept in the form of a programmatic and visual scenario; they move on to a final design in drawings, quantitative performance studies, and complete the process with virtual and physical prototypes. Quantitative research relates to acoustic, heat transfer and structural performance as input. In the second semester, Building Design, students work on the spatial-functional design of a building in applying building system integration from concept phase on. This is structured as an integrated design process driven by quantitative performance evaluations on three aspects: structure, climate and construction. The first year forms the basis for the specialized in-depth studies of the second year. Second year At the end of the second semester students will have to make their final choice for one of the

MASTER PROGRAM
three BT specializations: Architectural Engineering, Research & Development or Faade Design. After this first year, all three specializations will diverge into their own direction. Faade Design Program students will follow an in-depth program focused on faades during the 3rd and 4th semester. The first quarter of the 3rd semester of the Faade Design Program consists of the courses Faade Technology and Future Faade Design. The course Faade Technology consists of several lectures organized by the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil Engineering & Geosciences of TU Delft and parties from professional practice: the VMRG (Dutch Faade Builder Association), the KCG (Knowledge Centre of the Dutch faade industry) and several related faade manufacturers. Lectures of the course are embedded within several themes: 1) Architecture and faades, 2) Construction and detailing of faades, 3) Sustainability, climate and comfort 4) Production and assembly of faades, 5) Materials and facades, 6) Safety aspects of facades and 7) Quality aspects of facades.

Also an (international) symposium and additional workshops are part of this course. In parallel to the more theoretical course Faade Technology, the course Future Faade Design focuses - by means of a more practical research and design assignment - on a specific and varying research topic, being relevant within the Faade Research Group (part of chair DOC). The second quarter of 3rd semester consists of preparation work for the graduation project in the 4th semester. The fourth semester builds on the graduate project preparation, completed in the previous semester. Students work on an individual graduation project, comprising a technical research assignment in an innovative or design research domain. The thesis can be directly related to one of the Faade Research Programmes as organized within the Faade Research Group or to the faade industry by means of a in-company graduation project. The Faade Design Program starts twice a year, in the first and third quarter of the academic year respectively.

CHAIR DESIGN OF CONSTRUCTION


The Faade Design Program is organized by the Department of Building Technology of Delft University of Technology and related chair Design of Construction (DOC). About the Chair Design of Construction An essential part of designing buildings is the necessity to translate ideas into structures. That is why a conceptual idea must already capture the final shape of a building as it is perceived by its users. The chair Design of Construction (DOC) aims at the main features of structural engineering, the application of construction materials and elements as well as the spaces in-between materials and elements. Throughout this approach, an analysis of the systematics of structural engineering, its construction principles and its relation with the manufacturing process takes place. During the bachelor and master courses the chair covers topics such as system-building, facade design and special structural principles. In the field of research the main focal points lie within the area of glass, facade design, systembuilding as well as the systematic and structural organization of the building profession. By
Selection of books published by chair Design of Construction

undertaking research it is the chairs aim to develop and test the implementation of new and renewed construction methods and material applications. In addition to a personal engagement of teachers and researchers in building projects, the connection between education and research is achieved by a systematic integration of the curriculum within the research projects. In parallel to the bachelor, master and thesis projects, individual study groups are also integrated with different parts of the curriculum. Here the results of each research are tested in models in order to reveal potential problems which might occur during a project realisation on a larger scale. This forms a synergy between research and education, representing the main aim of research driven education. The Chair Design of Construction is lead by Prof. Dr. Ing. Ulrich Knaack. The DOC-site www.doc.bk.tudelft.nl will give you further information about the chair.

FAADE RESEARCH GROUP


Instruction and education is coupled with the current faade research programmes as organized within the Faade Research Group at Delft University of Technology. About the Faade Research Group During the past decades, faade construction has undergone extensive development. There are several causes; first the architectural development in general, which is always expressed in the faade appearance. Secondly, a clear trend to more ecological solutions in terms of energy savings. In addition, more respect is paid to user friendliness and climatic performance, and today faades are one of the most important elements of the installation system. Faades represent the interface between the user and his living environment and the outside world. Construction methods are becoming increasingly sophisticated; resulting in system based design methods. Within the Faade Research, we envision the future building being a living interactive body, with the faade as one of the most complex building components. According to the idea of research driven design and design driven research, Prof. Dr. Ing.

The role of the building envelope related to the energy performance of a building and the comfort of the user is signicant and, under the aspect of sustainability, is coming into focus more and more. Since the introduction of the double leafed faade, it is obvious how the climate performance of a building can be an important tool for architectural expression. Following the successful conference The Future Envelope in 2007, our goal is to again gather international specialist from the elds of architecture, engineering and research to share information about projects, practical experience and their visions for the future climate-oriented building envelope.

Just like a ne musical instrument is attuned with the entire orchestra, the performance of the future faade will be tuned in accordance with the entire building. In contrast to facades by Mies van der Rohe, which were exclusively designed by the architect, todays facades are complex systems. A multitude of people are involved in the very early planning phase, and facades can no longer be considered truly functional without a valid climate concept. But what does that mean in practice? Can conventional methods of execution still be applied? Can the faade be compared with other disciplines, and can we learn from those?
