SusTED' 13: Sustainable Tropical Environmental Design Conference 2013

SusTED' 13: Sustainable Tropical Environmental Design Conference 2013
18-19 December 2013, Fakulti Rekabentuk dan Senibina
University Putra Malaysia 


Today, the built environment faces the steep task of answering complex questions pertaining to sustainability, performance, and adaptability. The challenge is to come out with innovative thinking in resolving these issues either in the form of new ideas, methods, design or product and technologies. The adaptation of innovation in the built environment provides alternative strategies in creating a more sustainable living environment. The SusTED 13 this year will focus on establishing coherence of the built environment in research and innovation, by bringing both academics and practitioners to share their views and experiences. The theme, ‘Innovation in the Built Environment’, draws attention to the awareness, appreciation and adaptation towards innovative means in shaping the future of built environment and society. The focus of discussion concerns interdisciplinary approach that contributes towards innovative solutions of environmental issues.
