In August, Tullio Inglese taught a one week course in Home Design at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont. He gave a PowerPoint presentation on the Twelve Principles of Ecological Architecture and their integration with residential design. Using this as a basis for instruction, he worked one on one with each student, guiding them in their personal design ventures.
A description of this yearly course at Yestermorrow is as follows:
This course teaches students how to design a home and communicate that design through floor plans, sections, elevations, and a scale model. Through conversation, lectures, and slides we explore such issues as site planning, climatic design, sustainability, building layout, structural principles, materials, energy conservation, solar strategies, and what makes a building a beautiful expression of its occupant’s lifestyle.
The class visits local homes to view original, creative, and traditional design concepts. Students learn the fundamentals of a design process that they can apply to their individual projects. This class is perfect for those interested in new home construction, remodeling or renovation, or exploring a new career.”
Stay posted for future courses taught by Tullio Inglese at Yestermorrow.
