Module 4: Buildings
Sustainable Planning - Buildings
|Download||| Print ||
The pupils use what they have learned to design a regional sustainable plan for buildings.
What to do:
By now the pupils will be familiar with the routine of using the aerial photo maps or local maps to apply what they have learned to their local area. Although the maps will not show them a significant level of detail for individual buildings, they will have an overview of the regional built environment as a whole. In coming up with a sustainable regional building plan for the area, encourage them to think about what kind of requirements will be needed in the near future:
- Will we need more housing, more industry buildings, more community buildings?
- What kind of new buildings should there be?
- What about the existing building stock – can it be refurbished easily?
Record their plans in a media of choice.
