Construction solutions and details.
The course project is a bungalow. Each student, provided with a set of reference and a planning scheme, has to develop the basic building elements independently, using an appropriate building technique. The building must be designed with a wooden framework.
Students have to employ at least two details of typical building elements and, if necessary, according to the assistant professor, a technological detail of the building construction technique, which is closely related to the architectural construction solution.
