on Bainbridge Island, WA
Wednesday, June 27—Saturday, June 30
year's theme, "Out-of-the-Box," focuses on
environmental design activities and innovations SBSEers are
achieving with practitioners, communities and studies
abroad, K-12 students, and/or have developed as part of their research. The "Box" may be loosely defined as what architecture faculty traditionally do
"in-house", in classes at their own universities. Part of the schedule may be devoted to a building performance investigation at IslandWood (e.g., lighting, energy use, air movement,
occupant satisfaction, as related to design intentions).
Participants will stay on campus in comfortable, rustic
lodges; use the IslandWood classrooms during the day; and take meals in the dining facility
where food is prepared using fresh local ingredients and served family-style. The retreat schedule
is organized with formal presentations during the morning and evening sessions, leaving afternoons open for informal networking groups, hikes through the 255-acre IslandWood campus, or impromptu work groups that might gather as needed.
The retreat will be organized around
your proposals and the following themes: practitioners, K–12 programs,
and studies abroad, and innovations, as well as roundtable discussions and
working groups. We are seeking proposals
(due March 5) from faculty and students.
