Title: Lecture 5: Flows - railway stations
Author: Kohler, Niklaus
Abstract: Flows-- the transference of people, resources, information, and/or energy within a system-- has always been a crucial factor in the design of individual architectural projects, and to an even greater extent in the design of urban spaces. But as a field of academic study and as an applied design philosophy, the concept of flow is a fairly new development. In this lecture, Dr. Kohler looks at sustainability in archtiecture through the lens of flow theory. He analyzes various urban environments and individual buildings as flow systems to focus on their net environmental impact, and asks students to apply these principles to developing an input-output flow model for a proposed high-speed railway station.
