- Yes I know what should be my goals now, but just I was not trained to reach all of them.» (Sufficient)
- the workshop and the class we had were really interesting but it might have been usefull to go deeper into the technical aspect of the subject by some extraclass (a solar house worshop?)» (Sufficient)
- I found this course the main root of this master programme. It includes all the basic issues that a sustainable house can have. I think it was the reason that I came here for. So the goals were excellent.» (Excellent)
- really good and successful workshop» (Excellent)
- I learned really a lot about Passive house design.» (Excellent)

- More exercises on passive house calculations would have proven very helpful» (Insufficient)
- NN could not help us designing passive house, her advices were only about the measurments of rooms. She commented in our project, just on her opinion in architecture, however the goal of learning how to design a passive house was lost in her advices and comments on the last proposals. so we designed by ourselves knowledge.» (Excellent) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

- Skulle varit lite mer handledning anpassad mot energiberäkningarnas.» (Insufficient)
- We had a lot of useful lectures. However I found it very hard to reach information to measure energy efficieny of my house. The lectures and exercises were not enough for us to understand how the system works. That caused most of us to fail in building a passive house. » (Insufficient)
- I should say: they introduced a good web site.» (Sufficient)

- I strongly argue that we did not get enough information on solar panels and gaining energy for thermal needs. Electrical gain from solar cells were several times explained, but heating systems and how to integrate the solar gain to heating system were left unsupported.» (Very insufficient)
- The supervisor is not a professor of solar energy, therefor I didn"t get more info or help with desgining PV for my house in the last period.» (Insufficient)
- Samma här, lite mer handledning vid beräkningarna skulle gett mindre fel vid slutinlämningen.» (Insufficient)
- would have liked more details on the restrictions for solar collectors... how they should connect, etc» (Sufficient)
- I got a lot of information but i think I should know more about calculation solar panels.workshop was good but we need more information to design a real project.» (Sufficient)

- I like this part the most! Which let me knew that landcape, water management or some other attachments to a building should never been secondary.» (Excellent)
- I have learnt a lot from storm water management. We had enough time to analyse the site, read literature and research on the water management topics, so that I had a good vision of landscaping and storm water management while doing my design proposal.» (Excellent)
- Now I know alot about storm water management.» (Excellent)

- This point was more mentioned in Part A. And I realized many fellows designed with high environmental impact materials this time.» (Insufficient)
- concerning the part A of this course, correction on detailing (pencil on poster perhaps) would help understand the mistakes and avoid their repetition» (Insufficient)
- Again, in Sustainable Building Part A we had a good exercise about materials with low environmental impact, so that I knew which kind of material to chose for my project. » (Excellent)
- My knowledge of material completely improved.» (Excellent)

- Maybe too much focus on the technical aspects, not so much on the social sustainability. » (Insufficient)
- reached thanks to the pdf you have put on the homepage» (Sufficient)
- ...but I would have liked more time to work on the design of the buildings.» (Sufficient)
- calculations are just for Sweden, we have not learnt to calculate for other places.» (Sufficient)
- Some basic design decisions for a passive house are usually the same. However if I were given more time, I would definitely try to have some other forms that is more architecturally revolutionary than a typical passive house form. » (Excellent)

Genomsnitt: 2

- yes, a small step forward that I like.» (Yes, the goals are reasonable)
- Only one note, the goals at some point became very vague, causing uncertainty about the final amount of work needed and the overall focus of the project. I was confused about the aim, was it urban design or more about the detailing of an urban area (structural details). Perhaps the fact that the time frame was sort (2 to 3 weeks), made the goal difficult to reach. » (Yes, the goals are reasonable)
- my per-knowledge was difference from here in term of climate and culture» (No opinion)

- one more week would absolutely make the differnce. The project outcome would be better and the ambitions of making something extraordinary. The time is just enough to make an OK project with existing solutions. That of course depends on what you expect. but dont expect magic in this timeframe.» (Too wide scope in relation to credits)
- With this exercise, I did not look at the credits I gain. The exercise itself is so precious than the credits or grades I gain.» (No opinion)

- There were several clashes in the course information. From the beginning, is this exercise aimed for a "passive house" or a "plus energy house"? Some papers in the portal says passive, some says plus energy. Most of the students in my group were confused about this basic information, and we agreed on "it wasn"t well defined". So we aimed on designing a passive house. Also the delivery time for the course was a failure for me. It was 16th of april friday from the very beginning, but suddenly on thursay the digital delivery was pulled to monday. I would have planned a better schedule for myself if the deadline was set on a definite time. Some student studied on weekend as well, which means they had 2 more days than I had. I didn"t want to work on the weekend, and I would have felt more safe if all the student have the same conditions.» (Very bad)
- Some requirements writen in the assignment paper were enventually cancled since we didn"t got enough skill to reach it, like the energy balance calculation, which was a pity.» (Rather bad)
- working individually on this assignment was difficult and the consultations could not help us, also the assessment.» (Rather bad)

- I would have needed more time and consultantion to understand about the energy calculations.» (Rather bad)
- ...need a expert of energy calculation.» (Rather well)
- The reason I can"t say "very well" is that I would have more consultation time with the architects. Half an hour time was definitely not enough. Also for the peak power calculations, I think we needed another consultation for that. It would be more reasonable to reach the passive house standards if we had assistance for calculations before we hand in the project.» (Rather well)
- The consultations were helpful in combination with the pleasant and gentle, yet to the point remarks of the professor.» (Rather well)
- Consultations were really helpful.» (Very well)

- good atmosphere in the group but really bad location of the studio (most of us were working in the sustainable/conservation studio)» (Rather good)
- It s not group work but I consult with some friends in the course.» (Rather good)
- It was cooperation in between groups.» (Very good)
- Excellent international students!» (Very good)
- we had not worked in groups but we helped each other to find informations and materials we need» (Very good)
- Discussing with other students broadened the perspective on the projects aim and it was interesting to see that more people shared the same views and at the same time produce a very different urban design.» (Very good)

- Very useful, very important, yet still need to be improved to reach the excellent level.» (Good)
- very enjoyable course. The abscence of limits of what we were allowed to do felt great giving your mind a good chance to be a bit inovative.» (Very good)
- i liked the project. lectures were good.» (Very good)

15. What should be preserved next year?

- Good lectures and workshops! Rather erough working time. »
- passive workshop and the 2 "pre exercice" about landscape and materials»
- work shop,consultation,Lecture about solar energy in building.»
- The professors attitude towards the students. It creates a more relaxing environment. Also the focus to the passive housing techniques.»
- the workshop was very useful»
- I think the passive house exercises with NN should definitely be kept for next year. It was extremely useful and instructive. Maybe spread the workshop time into more days than squezeing into 2. The other lectures as well. Looking through last years projects were also useful.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

16. What shuold be changed the nest year?

- Could the teacher make an appointment with a passive house owner, so that we could go and visit his house? May be a visit to example of combined system of solar power for both thermal and el .»
- more time for the final project (hand-in on friday this week for example would have been just the amount of time needed) more tutoring (2 a week to speed up our design researches)»
- Lägg till mer handledning.»
- The requested deliveries were a lot. From water management of the site to swedish standards of a house, from urban scale to detail scale, there were many points that was asked from us. Because of this reason we couldn"t be able to fulfill all the requirements for a passive house. If this exercise were longer than Exercise A in terms of time, or the expected deliveries were less than wanted, I believe we would be able to focus on passive calculations much more. So I wish next year there will be more consultations (at least tree, 1 for the peak power calculations) and less demands for a project.»
- working individually, consultants and assessment format»
- maybe a more holistic and visionary view on sustainable building and living.»
- I think the time for the prrject was not enough and we needed more consultaion times as well.»
- maybe the site of project,and more consultation time.»
- More social input. Maybe the possibility to choose an other angle regarding the project that could be focusing on other aspects of sustainability.»
- The amount of time given to fulfill the assignment and the amount of time and number of passive house calculations.»
- Should have more work shop and exercise about passive house calculation.»
- More emphasize on the energy calculations, and more passive architecture-lectures. Look over the delivery-demands and the project-time. It was a bit stressfull. » (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
