This book presents ‘Integrated Design’ research on zero carbon. It surmises zero carbon design findings carried out in research studio design environments examining how architects and engineers work together with clients to design buildings.
The i-hub Blue Book of Zero Carbon presents Integrated Design research findings on designing for zero carbon. Pdf version available here.
It comes from work carried out under ‘i-Hub’, a research hub initiated by AIRAH (the Australian Institute for Refrigeration and Air Handling), and funded by ARENA (Australia’s renewable energy authority). The work was led by The University of Melbourne in collaboration with Queensland University of Technology, and the University of Wollongong.
This book serves as a summary document of findings, further more detailed information can be found in the detailed research reports produced as a part of the ‘Integrated Design Studios’ or IDS stream at www.i-hub.org.au
