Description
Do you think of historic preservation when you think of sustainability? You should. Reuse and rehabilitate existing buildings as part of your overall sustainability goals. You’ll save money, generate revenue, and make beautiful, long-lasting investments in the future.

This interactive online course illustrates the metrics commonly applied to sustainable design but with an eye towards the reuse of buildings individually and in commercial and residential districts. In particular, we will show you how to read the built environment and pick out the precedents that led to contemporary practices like transit-oriented design, new urbanism, and smart growth.
