Interdisciplinary Training within the education curricula for Architects and Engineers

Elżbieta Ryńska


Up until the third decade of the 20th Century, architects relied mainly on the technical outcomes of civilisation when achieving internal environmental standards and used mainly technological solutions. Per Heilselberg says that before the introduction of sophisticated internal systems - internal comfort parameters were achieved through adequate shape of the building’s form and detail. Currently, when the civilisation is confronted with the barrier of source scarcity, a shrinking level of not just fossil energy sources, but other sources as well, there is a need to remodel the curricula of design education and move from linear autonomous solutions into interdisciplinary ones, cooperating with external environmental parameters specific to each given location. This type of education is very rare and is difficult to achieve using contemporary education procedures. This article describes the outcomes and problematic issues found during interdisciplinary cooperation between architecture students and students representing other disciplines, during a semester design studio.
