Our Sustainable Campus is a PTAS-funded project in the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA), Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), University of Edinburgh.

The learning of sustainability principles is best grounded in concrete experiences such as field visits of successful built works. The Our Sustainable Campus project develops interactive self-guided learning tours that enable students to visit and experience sustainable buildings by themselves at their own pace.

The materials presented in this project are designed for second year undergraduate architecture students but are accessible to anyone with an interest in sustainable architecture and a basic understanding of energy effeciency!

The University of Edinburgh campuses have several buildings with verified sustainability performance. The Edinburgh Climate Change Institute (ECCI) building is an example.

This ECCI Hybrid Tour consists of 2 parts: The PRE-Visit Tour provides some background information about the building before you make the in-person visit and can be taken anywhere in the world. The IN-Visit Tour is best experienced when you are able to physically visit the building.

Written, designed, and produced by W.V. Lee with additional research by E. Charlton Hutchinson and T. Sterling Jr.; technical assistance by Learning Technologist I. Pantopoulos; reworked drawings by E.Charlton Hutchinson.
