Integrated Design, Architecture and Sustainability IDEAS

The axis “Integrated Design Architecture and Sustainability” (IDEAS) is a joint initiative of both the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Performance-Integrated Design (LIPID) and Laboratory of Architecture and Sustainable Technologies (LAST) of the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) at EPFL. It responds to a need to further reinforce the integration of sustainable architecture questions within the framework of the Doctoral program Architecture & Science of the city (EDAR) as well as a to strengthen exchanges and synergies between the three institutes of ENAC. Towards this end, it lies on one hand on a new interdisciplinary education offer in the form of seminars and workshops, and on the other hand on a networking structure for EPFL PhD students.
