This module consists of different courses in which different fields of architecture are being treated. At the end of the module you have an understanding about how architects see and shape the world. You’ll learn how BIPV could serve the architect’s needs, but also where the application of BIPV might jeopardize its views.

After successfully completing the module on ARCHITECTURAL ASPECTS, the student:


  • Knows how to read, analyze, and understand different forms of architectural representations
  • Understands the social and historical contexts behind architecture
  • Has an understanding of how architects see and shape the built environment
  • Understands the interdisciplinary context of sustainability and architecture
  • Understands how cities are formed and how to maintain livability in future cities
  • Understands where BIPV meets and where it jeopardizes the views of the architect
  • Understands what is required from and by the field of architecture to implement BIPV on a larger scale
