Share this Post:

This report of the EDUCATE (Environmental Design in University Curricula and Architectural Training in Europe) project analyses the state of the art of environmental sustainability in professional practice in Europe and across selected non-European countries, so as to build a comprehensive picture of environmental awareness, knowledge and requirements within the practice of architecture to meet existing energy regulations and established environmental targets within creative architectural design.

The analysis featured in this report has been performed through on-line electronic surveys in order to ascertain the existing state of play in terms of environmental awareness, knowledge, ability-base and demands within architectural practice and collect feedback by building practitioners. Results of the surveys are divided in three main sections:

A.  Sustainable environmental design in the architectural curriculum;

B.  Sustainable environmental design in education and professional development;

C.  Sustainable environmental design in regulation and clients requirements.
