Just received notice that my paper for the International Conference on Sustainable Design, Engineering and Construction, “Expression and evidence, advances in architecture studio pedagogy,” was accepted for presentation and eventual publication through Elsevier/Science Direct. The paper is another partial chapter toward my book project developing a design studio pedagogy to address resource conservation and enhance quality of life of building users.
For those located in the area, please join us for final reviews of graduate design studio work that balances design studio, ecology, and urbanism. From design-making to systems-thinking to ecologic-responsiveness, students work focuses on a critical, if not derelict, site on the Fox River in Elgin, IL that can serve as a case study for future riverfront development in post-industrial cities. This is no Bilbao approach.
