Green Buildings ~ Stellar Architectural Designs
Just a small sampling of delightful green building designs to kick off the Teens. As far as I'm concerned, every building built from today forward should have several design elements in common: greenroof, outdoor access and decks, plentiful internal and external foliage, clean materials, cantileverage, structural and aesthetic glass, eco- and bio-memetic qualities, vivo-morphism (i.e. adjusts to us), energy efficiency, acoustic, photonic, and thermal sensitivity, and more... Now all we need are more great architects like Ken Yeang and Theodore Osmundson to ensure this happens!
