This "designers' manual" is made during the TIDO-course AR0531 Smart & Bioclimatic Design. Most students do not live very sustainable. They mostly rent their residence, leading to responsibility issues. Measures with a larger payback time are not taken because of the temporarily living situation and the relatively poor status of students. Still,...

The Durban bight has a very dynamic and variable coastline which is constantly under attack by the Indian Ocean. To protect the Durban harbour from this energetic ocean, already in 1855 breakwaters have been constructed to protect the harbour and prevent sedimentation inside. The construction of these breakwaters and eventually extending these...
