UBPL 762. Sustainability and the Future of the Built Environment. 3 Hours.

This course critically examines the evolving relationship between rehabilitation preservation, and new construction in creating a sustainable built environment in the United States during the twenty-first century. Some observers insist that we cannot build our way to sustainability, but instead must conserve our way to it. What is the appropriate balance of rehabilitation and new construction in creating sustainable built environment? What is the appropriate role of planning and design professionals in this movement? What knowledge and skills will be necessary? The course surveys the contemporary discussion about defining and evaluating a sustainable built environment as well as the economic and social requirements for creating a sustainable society. LEC.
