“A design workflow for integrating performance into architectural education,” an open access journal paper by Ulrike Passe, associate professor of architecture, has been published in Buildings and Cities 1(1), 565–578. The article is a detailed account of Passe’s sustainable design pedagogy in ARCH 601: Sustainable Building Design:

The architectural profession is moving toward the creation of carbon-neutral buildings. A new approach to architectural education is shown to equip architecture students to meet this challenge. An architectural studio approach allows students to integrate and predict the dynamic performances of light, sun, heat, and air movement, based on using an innovative, highly structured workflow method. An alumni survey provides insights into the relevance and impact of this approach on their career. Learning these skills made architectural students better equipped to address sustainable design in their career.
