Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The present research looks at teaching and learning methodologies for Architectural Technologies, based on the studio outcome after using an Architectural Design Project with a view to engage Year 3 students of Architecture with timber construction. Although in Architectural education, sometimes students experiment reactions of resistance towards architectural technologies, our job is to make students use architectural technologies an integral part of their studio project. The main aim of this paper is sharing and discussing a particular methodology for that purpose and assessing its impact on the students’ work and on their own position with respects to integrated building technologies.
