Next Generation Living
MetadataShow full item record
The idea and attempts of sustainable design in architecture is common today. Sustainability as it relates to architecture ranges from small modifications or minute enhancements all the way to full projects. There is no term to differentiate these vast ranging sustainable efforts. We casually say “sustainable design” when referring to our project yet there is a disconnect between the common and familiar phrase and what the term actually means when it comes to a particular project. Our research will be focused on the relationship between the calculated and proved efforts of sustainability in design and the perceived or idea of sustainability in architecture. We seek to project a commonality and dependence that proves that design of space, design of mechanical systems, and our perceived outlook of sustainability can collaborate and aid each other toward sustainable architecture. This collaboration will take form through the proposal or a living and learning community for the students and faculty of Texas A&M University.
