What good is a “Net-Zero” building if just the act of creating it dumps a huge load of CO2 into the air? The urgency of climate disruption demands that we reduce impacts now, not slowly over the next 50 years. Here we will look beyond reducing operating energy to also reducing the effects of construction and material choices.
This course is more of an introduction to low carbon building, rather than a 'how-to' course. You can expect to see some interesting examples and get exposure to some interesting new concepts. The goal is to whet your appetite and get you thinking in new ways.
