3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The foundation of the so-called Sustainable Architecture consists of the optimal use of natural resources to minimize the environmental impact of buildings, considering both the characteristics of the construction materials and the climatic conditions of the environment, with the aim of achieving the lowest energy consumption global in building and, in general, the least environmental impact. In this subject, the main aspects that should be considered in the architectural and urban design of bioclimatic type are analyzed, in order to be able to incorporate those elements that are more suitable to achieve an acceptable level of habitability and climate comfort of the urban and interior space through natural and passive procedures, reducing the use of active energy consuming systems.

The use of renewable energy sources both in the design of a building and in the planning of a city is also a crucial aspect in the performance of current and future Architecture and Urbanism. Where the passive techniques of Bioclimatic Architecture can not reach in the conditioning of the inhabited places, the active techniques used to reach the adequate comfort should work, increasingly to a greater extent, with clean energies.

The concepts and competences that are acquired when taking this subject are related to some of the most current technical concerns in Architecture and Urbanism. Therefore, for a student of this degree it is interesting to familiarize oneself with the notions that are discussed here, since they could be important in their future professional development.

Class Attendance (theory) [ON-SITE] Lectures E28 E38 E39 E40 E52 E55 E71 E72 E73 G02 G03 G15 0.84 21 Y N The basic principles of sustainable and bioclimatic architecture will be exposed. The use of the classes during them will be evaluated. Students who cannot regularly attend theory classes may alternatively take an exam in which the acquisition of knowledge and skills related to these classes are evaluated in both the ordinary and extraordinary sessions.
Group tutoring sessions [ON-SITE] Guided or supervised work E28 E38 E39 E40 E52 E55 E71 E72 E73 G02 G03 G15 G23 0.76 19 N N These tutorials will be dedicated to monitoring the work that must be presented at the end of the course.

Project or Topic Presentations [ON-SITE] Individual presentation of projects and reports E28 E38 E39 E40 E52 E55 E71 E72 E73 G02 G03 G15 G23 0.2 5 Y N A simple work will be presented in which some of the ideas developed in the course are reflected in the form of architectural or urban design or improvement. It is not intended that a project be designed or modified to be ideally sustainable, but rather that one or a few of the learned techniques be used to increase the sustainability of the building or space. The work and the presentation are recoverable in the extraordinary call.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Assessment of active participation 50.00% 0.00% The use of classes will be valued
Theoretical papers assessment 50.00% 50.00% The work carried out, as well as its presentation, will be valued.
Theoretical exam 0.00% 50.00% Only for students who cannot regularly attend theory classes.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    It will be evaluated participation with use in class of the student and the preparation and presentation of a work.
    Students of exchange programs will be evaluated by an alternative procedure determined by the teacher according to the circumstances of each case.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Students who cannot regularly attend theory classes may alternatively take an exam that evaluates the acquisition of knowledge and skills related to these classes. The weight of that exam in the final mark for the course will be 50%. The rest of the mark will be assigned through the evaluation of a work and its presentation.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The marks of the ordinary call will be saved for evaluation in conjunction with the activities passed in the extraordinary call. Students who have not been able to regularly attend theory classes and have not passed the alternative exam in the ordinary call may take another exam.
Students of exchange programs will be evaluated by an alternative procedure determined by the teacher according to the circumstances of each case.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Given the special characteristics of this call, appropriate evaluation mechanisms will be established to cover the same aspects than in the other types of call.
