Title: Flows
Author: Astrich, Robert N.; Walters, Briana
Abstract: This paper considers architecture as a a series of overlapping processes and flows that make up the lifecycle of an architectural project. It analyzes this lifecycle in the context of five primary flows-- raw materials, water, energy, organisms, and information-- which result in secondary flows such as waste, emissions and money. Awareness of these flows contributes to a greater understanding of the sustainability of architecture.
