Climate Sensitive Design
The International University of Rabat
Lecturer: Mohammed Bakkali
Level: Master’s Degree Year1
Semester: 2nd
February 14th 2017
The School of Architecture
The Course
Climate Sensitive Design
The Course
The Language |
The course will be ran exclusively in the English language
The reason is that most of the technical literature is produced in that
language
Any student who is facing issues with the general comprehension of the
course would need to discuss it with the lecturer – Some strengthening
sessions might be organized accordingly
The Course
The Abstract|
Climate change is a major issue and its impacts on the environment are
crucial. As design and construction industry, there is a must to develop
further awareness and responsibility towards reducing the effects of the
built environment on greenhouse gases emissions and further environmental
issues whether in emerging economies or not .
This course aims to clarify the impact of constructions on the environment
and climate change as well as pointing out different outstanding tools for
more environmentally friendly and climate sensitive design.
The Course
Description|
The course will focus on the most updated findings on climate sensitive
design applied to the built environment. The core sciences of the course
will be built on emerging findings from the field of urban meteorology.
The built environment via design processes, environmental assessment
methods, building regulations and urban planning, in addition to human
health and building energy aspects will be included for the applied sciences
part for the rest of the curriculum.
The Course
The Evaluation |
The final mark equal to the following:
1- Continuous Evaluation (50% of the final mark)
What does it mean?
-A 10 minutes’ test will be carried out at the end of every session.
The test paper is handed out at the first 5 minutes of each session, falling
that deadline a penalty will apply.
If a student misses more than three tests, he or she will be at the risk of
being rejected from the course’s continuous evaluation and must organize
an interview with the course’s lecturer.
- Additional home works and exercises may apply.
2- Final Examination (50% of the final mark)

Test 1
Climate Sensitive Design
Test 1
The test paper has been distributed from 15.45 to 15.50 |

1-What is your definition of bio climatic design?

2-What are the design indicators you know about the bio climatic approach when
applied to buildings and cities?

3-What do you need to know about this approach as an Architect?

4-How is the construction industry organized either in Morocco or elsewhere? This
means, would you need the help of other professionals? If yes, when and/or over
which design stage (concept design, design definition and so on and so forth)?

5- What have you understood from today’s session about urban meteorological
modelling?
Thank you for your
attention !
