title Environmental design - Lessons learned from teaching LCA
source Odysseas Kontovourkis (ed.), Sustainable Computational Workflows [6th eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings / ISBN 9789491207143], Department of Architecture, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 24-25 May 2018, pp. 65-74
keywords Architects largely define the environmental impact a building will cause throughout its life cycle. Especially decisions taken in early design stages have a great influence on the environmental performance. The integration of environmental assessment into the design process requires adequate tools and basic knowledge of the architects using them. This paper discusses both aspects by means of two case studies with students. In both case studies, the goal was to use Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to optimize the environmental performance of the building in the design process. The results of the first case study proved the benefits of using LCA-based information for decision-making, but some issues of using the tool during the design process became evident. In the second case study an improved LCA-tool was employed that proved to be applicable by all students. Nevertheless, only one group used the feedback to optimize the building design in an iterative process as intended by the supervisors. This leads to the conclusion that the difficulty of environmental design shifted from a lack of adequate assessment tools to the question of the design approach.
