‘Unboxing Carbon’, is a four-hour introductory course providing architects and associated professionals the knowledge and tools to calculate embodied CO2 for building materials - a necessity to make healthier choices in the design process.
Do architects really speak carbon? The last decade has seen a wellspring of vocabulary around sustainability emerge and gain prominence. But though we have the language, do we really have the literacy? What exactly is embodied carbon? Do you know your building’s carbon footprint? How can you trim that footprint in the design process? And why does it matter in the first place?
‘Unboxing Carbon’, is a four-hour introductory course providing architects and associated professionals the knowledge and tools to calculate embodied CO2 for building materials – a necessity to make healthier choices in the design process.
The program consists of two parts:
1 – Carbon and Materials ‘Base course’ – introducing the principles of measuring carbon emissions, understanding the global implications of climate change from the built environment, and conversing intelligibly with clients on decarbonization regulations and possibilities.
Includes a workshop with materials, with a focus on dialog and the intuitive understanding of embodied carbon.
2 – Carbon and Materials ‘Data course’ – introducing the principles of measuring carbon emissions, finding, understanding and working with the available data.
Includes a workshop with hands-on experience using EPD data to understand materials and their carbon impacts per m2.
Course material includes Henning Larsens templates in Excel and InDesign, which provide the framework for your team to produce the first pages of your office’s Material Carbon catalog. As part of the course fee, this initial work will also be quality controlled.
Come with your curiosity and environmental goodwill!
