Sustainable Design & Building Workshop
22 July - 11 Aug, 2013 at Auroville (near Puducherry), India
The Auroville Green Practices (AGP) Summer School program is an initiative using Auroville and its outstanding experience in human unity & sustainable living as a platform for the learning and personal growth of students from around the world, interested in architecture and design. The program is based on the H3 approach that nurtures hands (skills), head (competencies) and heart (inner capacities) of students. The workshop will serve as an experimental and cross-disciplinary educational laboratory, connecting theory and application with core human values such as justice, dignity and beauty, around the theme of Sustainable Building & Design.
Besides the hands-on workshop, students will have an opportunity to explore an integrated approach towards human habitats through site visits to various projects in Auroville and interactions with experts on sustainable practices such as Earth Architecture, Passive Solar Design, Vernacular Architecture, Integrated Planning, Ecological Sanitation, Decentralized Wastewater Treatment, Decentralized Energy Systems, Ecological Landscaping and Urban Agriculture.
