The construction and operation of buildings currently accounts for almost half of the world’s fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Architects, planners, and building professionals can play a pivotal role in shaping the impact that humans have on our planet, by creating buildings and communities that provide healthy places to live, work and play while protecting threatened resources.
Green Architecture Notes creates a place for sharing information that will educate, inspire and empower all who wish to design and build more sustainably, and for promoting environmentally conscious architecture. This new website will enable leaders in the sustainability movement to share their knowledge in a form that will stimulate creativity and encourage discussion.
We will showcase the best current examples of green architecture and sustainable design.
We will provide resources for finding organizations, products, materials and information useful to furthering the green architecture movement.
