February 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #85: Sustainable Architecture Defined

Tip of the Week

Perhaps you've heard the term "sustainable architecture" mentioned in reference to a museum, public facility, or a home. You might have an idea that the term has a link to buildings and the environment, but you're not really sure what it means. Sustainable architecture, also known as "green architecture," holds the philosophy that the design of a building or home should have the least impact on its environment possible. Every component in a building or home, whether it is affected by its environment or whether it affects its environment, can comprise sustainable architecture. These green architecture components can include passive and active heating and cooling, renewable building materials, water conservation methods, building design, and natural and artificial lighting.
