A series of multidisciplinary design studios run in 2007 and 2008.
Longevity and adaptability are key ideas when thinking through sustainability in the built environment. The challenge for designers is to not only design buildings for the present and short-term future but to also think in the long term.
It is assumed that consumption patterns and consumption behaviour must become more sustainable over the next 25 years.
This fourth-year Industrial Design studio engaged students with eco-innovation concepts in the first year of the project.
