Lee, Young S.
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v33 n1 p157-174 Feb 2014
The article focuses on a systematic approach to the instructional framework to incorporate three aspects of sustainable design. It also aims to provide an instruction model for sustainable design stressing a collective effort to advance knowledge creation as a community. It develops a framework conjoining the concept of integrated process in sustainable building practice and the learning as knowledge creation theory. It presents a case study where the framework was applied to a project emphasising the role of interior design in downtown rehabilitation by addressing economy, community and environment collectively. The integrated process involving various stakeholders for sustainable solutions is a collective effort to teach sustainable design as a knowledge creating community and sustaining knowledge advancement in society.
