“We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy—sun, wind, and tide.”
– Thomas Alva Edison
Sustainable architecture seeks to impact the environment as little as possible. It seeks to draw on our natural resources in a way that will not negatively impact upon the built and natural environment for the future and for future generations.
Sustainability is one of the greatest challanges facing architects today. It requires a holistic approach to the design process that includes responsible consideration of the natural environment, of energy consumption, building materials and how they are made, as well as how they will perform in the future. Mostly, though, sustainable design involves creating incredible spaces that can provide for their inhabitants in a way that nurtures positive progress and a more effective, less expensive, and better standard of living.
