Abstract

There has been a trend in the past decade to introduce a new paradigm of thinking about the manner in which architects, urban designer, and planners approach the design of built environments. This new paradigm places emphasis on the concept of sustainability, a concept with should be come the focus and goal of architectural education worldwide. Accordingly, the question that this paper addresses is: have we, architectural educators, reached to reconfigure our curricula in a manner that is based on sustainability?
