Architecture and Ecology

This course offers an overview of ecology in order to establish a basis for a discussion about architectural design. Where do ecology and architecture meet? Are the two fields at odds with one another, or is there an approach to architecture that leads to a symbiosis with ecological knowledge and action? The course draws upon local expertise, including colleagues at the Living with Lakes research center, in order to introduce the principles of environmental stewardship as well as Indigenous seven-generation thinking. PREREQ: 2306, (lec, sem and site visits), cr 3 (in Technology stream)(taught mornings).
