Description

Sustainable Architecture. Instructor: Prof. Avlokita Agrawal, Department of Architecture and Planning, IIT Roorkee.

The pace at which resource consumption is increasing in every field, it has become imperative to consider sustainability in all aspects. Buildings are a major consumer of resources through their lifetime. This has been realized by the nations world over and hence stricter norms and laws for construction are being laid. Buildings are supposed to be more and more efficient and optimal in consuming resources. Such buildings are called sustainable buildings and all buildings will be required to be sustainable. Hence this course becomes important in understanding: 1) The basic parameters of sustainable buildings. 2) Design, Practices and technology which would lead to creation of such buildings. 3) Science behind performance of efficient buildings.
