A Governance Framework For Eco-Centric Behaviour In Communities, Linda Too, Bhishna Bajracharya Oct 2012

A Governance Framework For Eco-Centric Behaviour In Communities, Linda Too, Bhishna Bajracharya

Bhishna Bajracharya

Climate change and its impacts have taken centre-stage in the media as well as academic research in recent years. This has led to better awareness of the sustainability issue among the general public. However, knowledge about sustainability is not necessarily matched by actual sustainable practices. The community plays an important role to effect lasting changes towards a more eco-centric behaviour. While various disciples such as marketing, psychology and urban design have undertaken research on this topic, these have often been done in isolation. The purpose of this paper is to draw together the knowledge from these well-established disciplines and develop ...

A Sustainable Design For The American Commercial Strip Mall, L. Carl Fiocchi, Jr.

L. Carl Fiocchi

The purpose of this project is to present an alternative in form, materials, and energy performance to the existing building type that has been the staple used in construction of American Commercial Strip Malls since the latter part of the nineteenth century. The project progresses through two phases. The initial phase is the designing of an energy efficient structure that is the basic unit in a system of modularity. This structure permits joining itself together with similar units to form an assortment of assemblies with different possible geometries that are in turn able to respond to various site geometries and ...
