This paper focuses on the evolution of environmentally conscious practice in an Architecture and Design firm through project case studies. What was once termed “green” design has evolved into sustainability. This evolution is significant, “green” design focused on the constituents of the material and sustainability is global in its considerations, extending far beyond the ingredients of a particular material. The case studies were performed in order to gain insight into how evolving sustainable research affects design practice. This project analyzes the critical factors involved in sustainable design decisions by conducting retrospective case studies on a variety of projects completed over a decade of practice. The research demonstrates the value of reflection on past decisions and evaluation of choices in proposing improvement to future practice.
