Abstract

This paper represents the ongoing study of theory and practice in relation to the development of sustainable buildings and the embedding of sustainable features to optimise their potential for teaching and learning about sustainability. It is hoped this will lead not only to a raising of awareness of the impact of buildings on the natural environment but to enable people to positively change their behaviours in terms of economic, environmental and social sustainability in and around their own built environments. The primary focus of the research is on the design, construction and use of the Twickenham River Centre as a leading example of sustainable design with environmental education at its heart.
