INTERNATIONAL DESIGN STUDIO: INNOVATIVE MULTIDISCIPLINARY PLATFORM FOR DEVELOPMENT OF GREEN TRANSFORMABLE BUILDING LAB AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TWENTE
Emerging whole Life Cycle Design requirements imposed on building design and engineering will require fundamental different way of design and construction in the future. Buildings in the future need to be more proactive in terms of energy production, water reuse, adaptations to the necessary comfort level, individual user demands and material reuse. Building structures will need to be put together in a manner that will provide a full integration of different climate, energy, aesthetic, spatial and material concepts into the building structure and their transformation in the course of time.
This approach to buildings, requires new design methodology which is systematic, collaborative, multidisciplinary.
The work presented in this paper describes a particular case study developed within the scope of the design and preparation for construction of Green Transformable building Laboratory at the University of Twente, through three International Design studios conducted between three International Universities, University of Twente, Faculty of Engineering Sciences - Industrial Design Engineering, Yildiz Technical University Faculty of Architecture and University of Sarajevo, Faculty of Architecture.
Construction of a green transformable building lab is an experiment in itself and once designed and built by students, will be used as a research and education platform for design of green transformable structures.
This paper investigates the transformation in architectural education towards systems design approach and use of multi-criteria matrix and criteria strategy matrixes as a guiding tool through the multidisciplinary collaboration between the three schools, on real case study project. The paper also discusses industry involvement and draws a possible scenarios and strategy for the collaboration between students and industry partners on a real project through the education.
