Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Sustainable building practices have become an integral part of the architectural design process. We are continually reminded of the detrimental impact of climate change and the impact of human activity on global warming.
With reference to case studies – demonstrating outstanding design solutions, on this course you will familiarise with the concepts and principles of sustainability.
With a visit from a guest speaker, you will be introduced to the 10 BREEAM categories, a framework used to evaluate various indicators across environmental, social and economic fields including: energy, pollution, health and wellbeing.
You will also have the chance to apply your knowledge and creative ideas, by participating in a short group workshop. Using an undeveloped site in London you will identify the challenges and solutions, for a new sustainable, architectural design to be enjoyed, without compromise, by future generations.
Who Should Attend?Anyone with an interest in sustainability in architecture, whether you have a design background or not. Perhaps you are thinking of applying for a future course in architecture or related design field; or simply interested in raising your awareness of the built environment.
