No. 4 Defining Values for a new Environmental Architecture

As you can see next week's topic relates to environmental architecture and is proposed by Paul Kenny of UCD. In his own words; "I would like to focus the reading around the idea of our cultural/social collective definition of 'value' as the basis for many of the current environmental problems and then apply that to architecture through the application of an appropriate value system."
To that end we will be reading
chapters 1, 2 and 9 from Christopher Belshaw's book "Environmental Philosophy"
The final reading is a chapter from 'Ethics and the Built Environment' (edited by Warwick Fox) called 'The Conceptual Basis of Building Ethics' and written by Mustafa Pultar.

As always we should be in for a very interesting discussion, if you would like to take part please email me at
