About this Session

Building formal siloed activities and structures is endemic in the academy. Traditional disciplinary boundaries define one field or subfield from another and the requirements one has to meet to be considered properly educated or expert in a discipline. The broad topic of environmental literacy, as it relates to the negotiated and constantly changing interactions between ecosphere and technosphere that comprise today’s industrial economy, requires a new kind of collaborative model especially in the professions. Practice with fundamental design methods and synthetic techniques can provide greater understanding of the creative process for those engaged in more purely analytical subjects. Emerging analytical methods such as those employed in the discipline of LCA can provide critical insight to those working in design, commerce, and public policy to meet growing sustainable development challenges. The first session looks at the cross-disciplinary necessities and opportunities inherent in sustainable design studies throughout the full life cycle of a student.
