Living Labs As A Pedagogical Teaching Tool For Green Building Design And Construction In Hot Arid Regions

2018 (English)In: Archnet-IJAR : International Journal of Architectural Research, ISSN 1994-6961, E-ISSN 1938-7806, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 338-355Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Sustainability and environmental illiteracy is still common in architectural curricula for undergraduate education. This may lead to further generations of architects who are unequipped for global sustainability goals. This paper discusses a living lab teaching experience which investigates the roles of learning through doing and hands-on building experimentation to root an understanding of sustainability in architectural education. The design studio at the centre of this paper was focused on passive, low-cost and energyefficient approaches suitable for a hot arid climate. The students were asked to design a refugee shelter prototype that was cost- and time-efficient, that would also present the least impact on the environment after demolition. The course’s teaching process also included invited guest speakers, field trips and a hands-on workshop for low-tech building techniques as a prelude to designing and building a full-scale physical model. Thermal comfort and energy consumption for the design proposal were evaluated by simulation, and the physical model was evaluated by field monitoring. This paper outlines the design studio pedagogical experimental living lab process and the resulting students’ projects. It also shows the various skills the students acquired and suggests how this type of pedagogy can be viewed as a pilot model for green architecture education.
