Vanier Scholar - PhD Individualized program
A critical approach to sustainable buildings
Sustainability is a broad discipline. Sherif Goubran, PhD student in the INDI program, is tackling the subject from the perspective of cities and building.
Goubran is working under the supervision of Carmella Cucuzzella (Concordia University Research Chair in Integrated Design, Ecology, And Sustainability (IDEAS) for the Built Environment), and the co-supevision of Thomas Walker (Finance) and Bruno Lee (Building Engineering).
He aims to examine 13 award-winning Canadian architectural projects using the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.
The outcomes will provide important insights for governments, scholars, practitioners and institutions, and help them to align building practices with local realities and holistic sustainability goals. The research supports Canada’s leadership in sustainable and clean-growth development in the built environment.
