Term 1 Building Studies : What Can Buildings Tell Us _ What Can We Tell Back

Studying how buildings work in practice is the object of the Term 1 team project. Some 15 buildings were studied this year in Central London and Santiago de Compostela, Spain. These are listed below. Printed reports of four of these building studies are on display here and summaries of some of the others can be viewed online. Project work involved on-site observations and measurements, interviews with occupants and building professionals, computer modelling and parametric analysis of environmental performance, speculative design research and comparisons with published benchmarks and other built schemes.
