This Saturday, April 11, from 9am – 1pm EDT we will be performing maintenance on the Vectorworks Community Board. During this time, the site will be unavailable.
The process of integrating exterior and interior features often begins with a desire to both physically enhance the occupant experience inside the built environment while also addressing energy efficiency and sustainability goals. Integrating a building into the landscape allows architects to design for the environment and lowers a building’s ecological footprint. Architects and landscape architects, building owners, occupants, and building visitors can all benefit from creative, aesthetic, and sustainable designs that merge seamlessly with the environment of the site location.
- Define how architecture and landscape architecture practices can be merged.
- List the energy efficiency and sustainability benefits of melding site and architectural design.
- Explain the importance of early planning and coordination with all members of the design and build teams for successful integration of interior and exterior design and features.
- Describe the benefits to the designer, builder, and occupant of merging indoor and outdoor architectural design strategies and features.
