In reaction to the implications of the industrial revolution, sustainability has become a crucial and prominent issue worldwide, particularly in the last 50 years. Subsequently, sustainable architecture has grown in importance, with significant contemporary discourse emerging. However, despite the immense array of existing knowledge and literature, the discourse of sustainable architecture is still a vast and vague paradigm.
Parallel to this, the current connection between discourse and practice can be seen as linear and disjointed; this is even more evident with the ambiguous nature of the discourse. Acknowledging sustainability as a complex and holistic field, this research project is focused on exploring, investigating and understanding different themes which influence this relationship between sustainable architecture discourse and practice.
