SPR 2022: ARCH 573 – Sustainable Design Case Studies

View Flyer

Office visits and interviews of architecture and engineering practitioners highlight how high performance ideas and sustainable practices are implemented across various professional settings.


We will meet with firms of various sizes and disciplines to understand how sustainability goals are understood, explored, and implemented. The roles and methodologies of architects, engineers, and sustainability consultants will provide students a view into various organizational models for integrating sustainability in design practice connecting academic learning with these professional viewpoints. The course provides students a perspective on positions within traditional firms that are serving non-traditional practice roles and provide a view into how students’ sustainability and high performance skills apply to their future professional endeavors.
