Orientation Workshop on 'Greening Architecture Education'

December 23, 2015

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organizing a one-day orientation workshop on ‘Greening Architecture Education’ on December 22nd, 2015 (Tuesday) at Casuarina Hall, India Habitat Centre (IHC), Lodhi Road, New Delhi. 

This event is a part of ongoing initiative of the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) to support green building and habitat movement to reduce the resource impacts of new construction in cities. This is a new area of governance that can be taken on if India is able to build a new cadre of architects and professionals exposed to the new science and techniques related to new approaches to passive and low energy architecture, sustainable material, building orientation and design, less water intensive structures, reuse and recycling of construction and demolition waste and techniques of assessing energy and resource aspects of building operations. This will also require deeper understanding of the environmental challenges of the building sector within the lager paradigm of resource constraints and climate change. This will also open up new avenues of job and employment for professionals. India is yet to build over 60 per cent of its future building stock. The challenge is to build new, which is efficient, sustainable, affordable and comfortable for all.  

This is a specialized workshop designed to help faculties in developing and providing a platform for exploring new approaches to sustainable architecture education. This will also discuss teaching methods, support from stakeholders like Council of Architecture for promoting green architecture curriculum and how institutions can contribute towards this.  

We look forward to receive nominations of concerned senior/mid-level faculties from architecture institutions in this workshop. CSE will not charge any registration fee for the workshop and bear the cost of training and meals during the training. However, it is requested that travel and stay costs are borne by the participants.
