Abstract

This paper discusses the outcomes of a new design/technology hybrid studio which was developed to integrate the ecological and environmental content of zero-energy and carbon-neutral design processes and methods found in the technology courses into the design studio. This new studio course replaces all required environmental technology courses in the graduate program. The investigation focused on a cold-climate approach to zero-energy carbon-neutral design education, with an emphasis on the roles of daylighting, passive cooling, and natural ventilation. The design studio curriculum content, methods, outcomes, and lessons are discussed, as well as the design tools and assessment and analytical methods.
