Architecture and Ecology

Through a cross-disciplinary approach, this course examines the ecological systems that affect the design of buildings, and vice-versa. It introduces strategies for environmental stewardship and designing within ecologies by investigating topics such as landscape, ecosystems and ecozones, botany and biodiversity, geology, water and soil, environmental remediation, and lowimpact development. Special consideration is given to Indigenous Seven-Generation thinking as well as the Boreal Region, Great Lakes, and Hudson Bay Lowlands. PREREQ: 36 university credits (lec 3) cr 3.
