Lecture 4: Foundations of sustainable design: Cultural aspects of sustainable development
MetadataShow full item record
Dr. Kohler discusses culture as a form of "intangible capital", and the difficulties in trying to preserve cultural resources in the face of many factors of social change, including globalization and a growing population attempting to cope with depletion and scarcity. He discusses various ways that societies may deal with these difficulties, and how architects may consider issues of cultural conservation in the context of sustainable architectural design.
