Sustainable Design

ARCH372Midterm_NilayKaraköy.jpg

The sustainable design is something we commonly hear but do not know for real. Up till now, before having this course on building technologies in architecture, I didn’t know much about it and what is worse is that I thought it was only about the use of green. Especially through this assignment in which we were given a specific form of the building and a specific climate condition I had a chance to look for sustainable solutions including natural ventilation, shading, passive heating, and material selection etc. I know that I am very new to it and might miss out many points so please comment your ideas and suggestions. You can find out more on the poster attached.

  1. Hi Nilay! I studied sustainable design and after reviewing your poster you’ve pretty much nailed all the passive heating strategies, great job! My only suggestion is adding insulation to the walls. You can also check out Passivehaus for more strategies on insulated walls. Best of luck to you and impressive project!
