This course explores and illuminates the design process, from orchestrating stakeholder participation to finalizing schematic designs. Building Design Refresher identifies and explains the core elements of the design of a safe and healthy building with a low environmental impact. At the same time, it suggests how to invoke the intangibles that make projects truly delightful and consequential. The course work is illustrated by three extensive case studies of buildings that achieved sustainable design goals while working with sensitive sites, urban design, local climate, and passive energy technologies.
