Abstract

The production of sustainable architecture has traditionally been inhibited by the inability to formulate a comprehensive scheme of environmental and project review. The environmental constructs(The ways that an environment naturally regulates itself independently from human influences) and the project objectives(The motivations for architectural development) each have aspects that relate to sustainability, some of which are interrelated and dependent on the other aspects for their existence and maintenance. The interdisciplinary review structure integrates existing evaluative methodologies and concepts into a personal, foundational analysis for sustainable architectural development. The structure integrates the developmental objectives of individual disciplines and professions into a comprehensive evaluation scheme for environments and architectural projects. The combined aspects and systems required for sustainability devise parameters to support a sustainable architecture for a site specific environment
