SBSE Retreat 2007:
IslandWood on Bainbridge Island, WA
Wednesday, June 27—Saturday, June 30

This 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, communities and studies abroad, and innovations, as well as roundtable discussions and working groups. We are seeking proposals (due March 5) from faculty and students.
