Title: Green Design: Introduction to Sustainable Sites (Based on LEED 2009)
Provider: Ted Shelton - UT Certificate
Author: Ted Shelton
Author Assistant Professor, UT School of Architecture Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton is an architect whose work and research are focused on the integration of design and technology with an emphasis on green architecture. He holds a BArch from the University of Tennessee, a MArch in Urban Design from the University of Oklahoma, and a MPhil in Environmental Design in Architecture from Cambridge University. He was a Fulbright Fellow in Estonia where he investigated how architecture has been renovated, adapted, and reused over the last century in repeated efforts to exert political and cultural influence. Prof. Shelton is the recipient of a research grant from the AIA National Board Knowledge Committee for his project Greening North Knoxville: Visualizing Sustainability in Urban Conditions. Working with colleague, Prof. Mark DeKay, he received an Ecological Literacy in Architectural Education Award from the AIA National Committee on the Environment and the TIDES foundation.

Prof. Shelton holds NCARB certification and is a LEED Accredited Professional. His professional experience includes work as a project manager and project architect for the Miller|Hull Partnership in Seattle where he worked on projects that garnered honor awards from AIA Seattle, AIA Northwest and Pacific Region, and an AIA Top Ten Green Projects Award from the National Committee on the Environment.

Along with Prof. Tricia Stuth, Prof. Shelton is a partner and co-founder of the firm curb, which is devoted to creating architecture that is well-designed, sustainable, and intimately tied to its place. They were winners of both the Plan Section Sentence Competition and the HOME House Competition and semifinalists in the Kielder Observatory Competition sponsored by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Their work has been recognized with merit awards from AIA East Tennessee, AIA Tennessee, and AIA Gulf States Region and been published in ARCADE: Journal of Northwest Architecture and Design, the Journal of Architectural Education, and HOME House: the Future of Affordable Housing.

Prof. Shelton is also a partner in Applied Research - a collaborative design team of University of Tennessee faculty members from the College of Architecture and Design. Combining the research interests of four faculty members, the group advances an architectural discourse by focusing on several key areas that include green design, material and construction technology, adaptive reuse, urban and community development, and spatial poetics. Applied Research was a finalist in the Jefferson Heights Tomorrow Sustainable Housing Competition for the design of environmentally progressive infill housing in Chattanooga, TN.

Architects think about buildings. Our experience and training often predispose us to see buildings as isolated objects. Buildings insistently hold our attention to the exclusion of all else. For us, too often the building is the project. Yet, for the architect who wishes to practice in a green manner, the focus must be broadened. By its very nature sustainability deals with interconnections between natural phenomena and human interventions across multiple scales. True green design demands that we look beyond buildings to understand both how projects are shaped by wider concerns and how our dec...

Learning Objectives

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize a broad overview of issues impacting the site environment
  • Recall several factors that inform sustainable site selection
  • Identify beneficial aspects of the site environment, which should be admitted and enhanced, and detrimental aspects of the site environment, which should be excluded or ameliorated
  • Evaluate the relationship, across multiple scales, between the impacts of a building project and various natural phenomena and social constructs
