Learn both how buildings are constructed, and how they can either improve of degrade the environment; making a place healthy or unhealthy. 

Learn to understand how to create buildings that are in tune with the environment

Buildings come in all shapes and forms; old, new, solid constructions and weak construction, large and small, residential, commercial and public. This course relates to them all.

In the past, little thought was given to the sustainability of construction in a holistic way. We may have built durable churches, castles and forts that lasted hundreds or occasionally thousands of years; but often lack of knowledge or forethought has resulted in construction with materials that are toxic to human health or with other undesirable issues.

This course will raise your awareness of not only how to build things, but also the human impact of the design and materials used in a construction; and the landscape surrounding the building.
