Analysis and design of typical small-scale building details. In depth exploration of the construction methodologies and building materials of a typical building, focusing on the analysis of requirements and the design of building elements components and systems:

i. Design - development of structural sections and typical details of the building's exterior envelope.

ii. Construction analysis & design of selected functional parts of the building (stairway, interim floor, etc.) - introduction to lightweight construction of metal or wooden elements or their combination.
