Green Building: Design Process


In this module the delivery of a high performance project calls for significantly increased collaboration among the various design disciplines. A focused goal-setting session should help develop a work plan for incorporating high performance objectives.

The emphasis on interdisciplinary design and resource management, together with use of new design tools, distinguishes high performance from conventional processes. Design thinking should be informed by the traditional efficiency methods and techniques employed by older or vernacular buildings, where forms, building materials, and means of achieving comfort respond to local climate and acknowledge the location of the sun.



This online course does not include formal evaluation, but does encourage students to self-direct their own assessment and examination of the information covered throughout the duration of the program.
