Abstract

For several centuries, man has sought for better ways to live and harness the potentials of the environment in order to solve his basic needs, one of which is the need for shelter. Ironically, the exploration of the environment has however led to it’s degradation in several cases. Global warming, an increase in global temperatures caused by a rise in the amount of carbon (IV) oxide in the atmosphere, is one of the major signs of this. As architecture reorders the natural environment, an approach that does not damage the environment should be adopted. This approach is to ensure that future generations are not deprived of the ability to cater for their needs because the present generation ‘overexploited’ the available environmental resources. This research compares the principles of sustainable architecture with the causes of global warming in order to develop a sustainable approach for architectural designs. This approach is seen from various case studies to ultimately reduce the rate of global warming from the angle of mitigating it’s causes. This design of a research institute included in this thesis reflects the direct application of sustainable principles in the bid to solve identified causes of global warming. It’s appraisal shows that a theoretical analysis of the problem identified contrasted with sustainable principles yield a pragmatic solution to the problem of global warming.

Abstract

It is a known fact that global warming is increasing at an alarming rate and causing hardships and disasters in ecosystems and communities around the globe. This has largely been caused by emission of carbon dioxide from various activities of man. A large percentage of these emissions, up to 48% come from construction processes and materials of modern buildings (UNEP SBCI, 2009). One major way to reduce these emissions is to embrace the concept of sustainability both in design and construction.  In order to secure the future against the hazard of global warming, there is a need to teach the concept of sustainable design in schools of architecture through the advancement of energy efficient building. This can be achieved by having an energy efficient building in students learning environment and introducing sustainable education into the curriculum. This study focuses on examples of this across the world and present fact to prove the practicality of this approach. Advancing this in the Nigerian state will yield both present and future gains. Not only will the graduating students be equipped to champion a sustainable built environment, they will also be more globally relevant and competitive.
