A Case Study of Integrated and Human-Oriented Sustainable Architectural Design


Article Preview

In recent years, sustainable building has been attracting increasingly more interests and attention in the world; as the same time, it is experiencing a high-speed progress and many landmark buildings have been built as green, ecological or sustainable buildings. In China, designers, professors and students in the architecture realm are encouraged to get involved in sustainable architecture design practically/theoretically. With this background this paper presents a case study of a sustainable architectural design, which contains concepts and ideas of integrated sustainable architectural design and a human-oriented “User’s Manual” based on a sustainable architectural information system, hoping to induce more profound discussions in the sustainable architectural design area.
