Environmentally Design; Barriers and Challenges in the Integrated Design Process Approch

Mary-Ann Knudstrup

    Research output: Working paperResearch


    It is a huge challenge in the future to make sustainable building design by using a more holistic and innovative approach in order to be able to decrease or reduce the use of energy for heating and cooling in new building projects, this seen in the perspective of the Kyoto agreement on global heating. The paper will shortly present the method of the Integrated Design Process (IDP). It describes the background and means for developing a new method for designing integrated architecture in an interdisciplinary approach between architecture and engineering. It also describes the barriers and the challenges that must be overcome, when you want to cross the borders between the two professions of engineering and architecture to design sustainable architecture.
