The course is extremely rich in information that addresses the principles of bioclimatic design of the façade: natural light, passive solar design, shading systems, natural and mixed ventilation,  as well as the principles of sustainable renovation of the facade, and how to select materials and the sustainable facade systems. All these are supported by examples and case studies, including even workshop sessions. Students learn about energy saving opportunities due to chosen insulation, windows, double facades, shading systems, ventilation, renewable energy, lighting, HVAC control systems, space efficiency and organization.

I believe the whole idea of the ​​course is to understand how architecture can maximize the benefits of environmental and climatic conditions.  Furthermore, the international experience of the speaker Aurore Julien offers a new approach on the matter.
