ENVS 80.03 Regenerative Design of the Built Environment

This class will examine current trends in ‘regenerative design” of the built environment that includes buildings, infrastructure, and manmade landscapes that interact with the natural environment and its potential to improve our lives and the planet. Regenerative design is a systems-theory based approach to design. “Regenerative” processes restore energy used and materials consumed through a closed loop model where the outputs are equal to the inputs where waste=resources. Through this process, social needs are addressed while diminishing ecological impact, and usable energy, food and additional materials are created instead of waste and the designed system can actually improve the natural environment over time.



The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
