Title: Insideout: Making Environmental Control Systems a Part of Design
Author: Brown, G. Z.
Abstract: The teaching of mechanical and electrical systems in isolation (i e, distinct from design studios), reinforces the notion that technical concerns are narrow, equipment oriented and independent. Broader environmental questions should be addressed, relating to social and political issues. To accomplish this, mechanical/electrical system design must be integrated with a synthetic building design process so as to combine diverse programmatic elements in a way that is responsive to physical, social and political context.
