Course Objectives This course will critically examine concepts, theories and practices of sustainable design across multiple scales. "Low tech" and "High tech" strategies will be examined, and exellence in architectural design will be explored through a critical analysis of case studies that employed "state of the art" technologies. The goal is to understand how passive and active sustainable design strategies have not only been integrated into the design process but also drive the architectural and urban form.

Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Critically analyze key concepts, principles, and approaches of sustainable architecture and urban design
  2. Communicate those concepts, principles, and approaches in non-technical language
  3. Critically analyze case studies of sustainbale design and assess their impact on the urban and natural enviornment.
  4. Restructure and apply these concepts and techniques to improve the building environmental performance.
  5. Apply sustainable design strategies in studio projects and assess their impact on the building's performance
Teaching Methods 1. Class lectures (instructor's presentations) 2. Individual exercises including presentation of sustainable design topics and/or case studies 3. Team based exercises and Team based sustainable design project 4. Class discussions around selected cases
