Research Theme: An interest in “green” architectural practices has led me to examine how abstract ideas are made manifest in concrete building situations. If architects contribute to environmental degradation by designing buildings that are inefficient and unhealthy, and a need exists to advance more sustaining practices, then concerned architects ought to reflect how design problems are expressed.
