Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to create, calculate and evaluate earth building details in terms of building physics and building ecology. There is a special focus on learning the ecological assessment of component structures in accordance with the Baubook - as a basis for assessing earthen structures in accordance with ÖGNI, ÖGNB, klima: aktiv. The students are able to compare component structures and make an informed choice with regard to the desired building quality.
