This course utilizes real-world "Living Labs," where occupants and professionals perform research studies on buildings, materials and on indoor environments to illustrate the challenges and opportunities of pursuing high performance strategies. Students may learn from physical and virtual field visits to live construction projects, from hands-on building science research and demonstrations, and from practitioners faced with the challenges and rewards of using the built environment as a "testbed" to focus on impacts to occupants with regard to air, water, light, fitness, comfort, smart growth and sustainable building practices.
