Course Objectives The course aims at advancing student's understanding of the principles of sustainable design, and the strategies and technologies to improve the building's environmental performance. The course will critically examine concepts, strategies, and practices of sustainable design across different scales. The goal is to increase students’ understanding of how passive and active sustainable design principles and technologies are not only integrated into the design process.
Textbook 1) Kwok, A. and Grondzik, W. (2007) The green studio handbook: Environmental strategies for schematic design, Burlington, Architectural Press. 2) Smith, Peter F. (2005) Architecture in a Climate of Change: A guide to sustainable design, 2nd Edition, Architectural Press, Oxford, UK.
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Critically analyze the principles and technologies for sustainable architectural design and developments
  2. Design a sustainable and environmentally efficient residential complex
  3. Generate and evaluate alternative design solutions for the design project
  4. Apply the key principles and standards for sustainable architectural design in the design project
  5. Link design and research of sustainable design to generate and evaluate alternative design solutions
Teaching Methods 1. Class lectures ( instructor’s presentations), 2. Desk Critique, 3. Research, 4. Informal group discussion, 5. Formal Juries/presentation, 6. Students' presentations of precedent analysis and design inspiration.
