FIU Sustainable Design

BySarah Sherman

This book documents how a culturally specific design project can foster in-depth application of USGBC’s LEED for Commercial Interiors rating system and increase understanding of the triple bottom line while recognizing and strengthening the social connections and contributions that green building brings to society as whole. The project involved teams of students from the Sustainable Interior Design Practices course working in collaboration with the Seminole Tribe of Florida to propose designs that modernize a cooking chickee (chickee is the Seminole word for house) and thus, help preserve a significant aspect of the Seminole culture through sustainable design.
