A helpful documentary video for students on lessons of environment! Because of its ability to transform the viewer at the intersection merging together of aesthetic, functionality and sustainability topics, this is one of the most interesting and innovative programs which delves deeply into the features of design that can have detrimental ecological results. Students also grasp into the various lessons of environment-friendly design and the utilization of life-cycle assessment by architects and designers to make sure that their work has no negative ecological impact. Sustainable design methods are explored through case studying of a “zero energy” home that employs spatial and solar-heating changes and through demonstration of a unique insulated tea kettle that depicts the enhanced innovative answers to energy consumption issues.
