What should our built environment be like if it is to be genuinely sustainable?
Taking our inspiration from nature to address this question points us towards all that can be learned from the amazing innovations and creative coping strategies that organisms have developed to minimise their use of resources – the world of biomimicry. But looking to nature can also remind us of the value of using local resources that require minimal amounts of processing and energy inputs. Both approaches can have a role in creating healthy, beautiful, and resource-efficient living or working spaces.
This course invites participants to find out more about exciting new and traditional approaches to building and to reflect on their own understanding of what makes for sustainable architecture.
