Sustainability at Multiple Scales in Architecture Education Pedagogy

This paper discusses a design studio pedagogy, evolving over several semesters, that involves preparatory experiences in sustainable community design and sustainable technology as a means to inform subsequent architectural design. The paper speculates that preparatory influences at the extremes of urban design scale and building envelope scale can stimulate a holistic approach to architectural design pedagogy and allow the design student to think more holistically about sustainability.  Download Paper
