Is Relative Sustainability Relevant? A discussion of 'Inn the Park' as a 'sustainable' restaurant

Tutor: Mike McEvoy

Hopkins' recently completed 'Inn the Park' building has been heralded as an environmental flagship enterprise. Taking it as a case study, this thesis scrutinises the environmental standards and criteria by which the building can be assessed. It seeks to highlight some of the conflicts and tensions between energy expenditure, efficiency and economics. It also demonstrates the influence architects can have and how they can contribute positively to achieving more sustainable buildings.
