What is green architecture? What is sustainable architecture?
These two terms both refer to structures and buildings that are using environmentally responsible construction materials and operations. From the green design to construction to maintenance to demolition, an eco-friendly building is created with a sustainable approach to help minimize environmental impact.
By avoiding building elements that could be harmful to the planet or people, green architecture techniques are used in residential and commercial buildings.
From green construction materials to modular prefab houses to sustainable building design, sustainable design in architecture is good for everyone and is becoming more popular.
