Knowledge of the main Passive Architecture parameters.
Usage of solar charts, in Passive Architecture and in Bioclimatic Architecture.
The classes should raise learning, discussion, debate and, above all, questioning of the students about the absolute need to preserve the environment and the natural resources. Texts, pictures and eventually drawings will be used.
