Sustainability and Interior Design
The design community, along with society as a whole, has become aware that a new, more bio-friendly approach to design must be taken if we are to stop polluting our earth, wasting energy and resources, and jeopardizing our own health and that of other species. Design firms are therefore being looked to for expertise in these areas and educated designers must be conversant with both the design strategies and building technologies associated with environmentally responsible structures and spaces. This studio course is designed to acquaint students with the implementation strategies for such design, through a series of lectures case studies, and projects.
