The Architecture of Zero Emission Housing

13 May 2010

Caroline Pidcock, Pidcock Architecture + Sustainability

Introduction: Deo Prasad, UNSW - cohosted by Institute for Sustainable Solutions, The University of Sydney
About the talk
Caroline will talk about the issues that are emerging from her Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship research, which is looking at "The Architecture of Zero Emissions Housing". She has recently completed the first stage of her travels and will talk about what she has found so far. In particular, she has been looking at the regulatory environment that is supporting this in the UK and Europe, as well as the technical and design issues being encountered. Is such an approach to housing relevant to Australia? And if so, what should we be thinking about.
