summary This paper describes the development of an interactive computerized module developed as a digital resource for architectural design students that incorporates the premise of using architectural form as a primary environmental control system in a building. The first in a series of such modules, Climactic Factors in Regional Design illustrates the factors involved in regional design strategies. With the recognition that many design practices of the latter twentieth century are not environmentally sustainable, this module is to be used in a curriculum which recognizes that sustainable architecture begins by using architectural form as the primary environmental control system and the mechanical and electrical systems supplement that system not dominate it. With recent advances in recognizing sustainability issues, the country is now more willing to embrace environmental stewardship. The path to reduce environmental problems is through the integration of practices recognize architectural form as a primary environmental control system. As such, the latest generation of designers must view design comprehensively. If future building designers are to succeed, environmental control integration needs to be included pro-actively within the initial design rather than reactively appended to the end. Climatic Factors in Regional Design is designed to foster this paradigm shift and is divided into several topics and subtopic sections which include Introduction, Regional Design, Microclimate, Regional Guidelines, Design Strategies, Glossary, and Sample Examination. The module contains 260 screen displays and more than 250 illustrations, figures, and diagrams. Users can progress through the module in any sequence as their needs warrant. The module was developed using the academic version of Authorware Star by Macromedia.
