ARCH 000/2501 - Let’s get Sustainable (3 cr.)



Description
This seminar-based course aims to familiarize students with the evolving concerns related to sustainability in the built environment and urban contexts. Specifically, it aims to bridge the theory-action gap around sustainability issues by allowing students to engage in a reflection-in-action learning experience centered around our daily actions in the city. While city living provides us with much convenience, the course aims to reveal to students how sustainability is a collective endeavor - advanced by our individual actions. While following a design-based pedagogy, it seeks to cross the disciplines of design, environmental sciences, business, as well as the humanities and social science, to provide a contemporary understanding of sustainability as it crosses the environmental, social, cultural and economic dimensions.
