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 excellence 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.
Textbook Schropfer, T. (Ed.) (2005) Ecological Urban Architecture: Qualitative approaches to sustainability, Birkhäuser Verlag GmbH, Basel. Smith, P.F. (2005) Architecture in a Climate of Change: A guide to sustainable design, 2nd Ed., Architectural Press, Oxford, UK.
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, 3. Team-based exercises, 4. A team-based sustainable design project , 5. class discussions around selected cases.
