Environmental design

Environmental design is the process of addressing surrounding environmental parameters when devising plans, programs, policies, buildings, or products. Classical prudent design may have always considered environmental factors; however, the environmental movement beginning in the 1940s has made the concept more explicit. -- Richard Plunz (ed.), Design and the Public Good : Selected Writings by Serge Chermayeff 1930 -1980, MIT 1982

I am taking the subject 'Environmental Design' this semester. The lecturers of this subject are Zulkiffli Bin Che Haris and Deepak Kumaran Menon A/L Sangaran Kutty. We are going to learn about how do design the environment like, interior and exterio
r building in this subject. We have two projects for this subject. The 1st one we have to build a physical 3D model with tools. The second is a digital 3D model building with 3d software like Maya and 3D Max.

At the end, I would like to say that I am really looking forward for what I can gain this semester, in this subject. I am so pump up since I've develop a great interest about the environmental design. I have a sister who studying architectural so I think we can surely share our opinion about this topic and learn from each other.
