Read the recent Grid Article on the MS in Sustainable Design Program
Design Education for a Sustainable Future (DESF) is a new book and web resource which is written and designed to assist built environment educators in their pursuit of increasingly higher levels of sustainability in their curriculum. The goal is to provide a set of tools to assist faculty members to move beyond the intention to teach sustainability to an operational condition.
The five identified Intentions discussed in the book are: Design Consciousness; Inclusive Learning Environments, Cooperation as a cornerstone of interdisciplinary work; Re-alignment of typical sequences in the design studio, and a focus on Integration as a means to achieve Integral Sustainable Design
The Five Operational Approaches discussed in the book include: Integrated Design Charrettes, Design Build Projects, On-line Education, Co-Curricular Initiatives and eco-literacy
