Study type Taught


This course will provide you with a critical understanding of the relationship between architecture and ecology. You'll look at both from a theoretical perspective. This will be done by instructional modules taken at Strathclyde in Glasgow during the first three months of study. The practical demonstration of this relationship will be through project work at the urban laboratory Arcosanti in Arizona.
