What is green architecture?
Green architecture is environmentally sound. It is created to respect and take advantage of the environment. It uses tactics like the following:
- Positioning the house to minimize solar loss in the winter and solar gain in the summer.
- Using a narrow footprint, facilitating cross ventilation in all rooms.
- Placing windows to maximize solar benefits and natural ventilation.
- Kitchen appliances are energy-smart.
For more information on green architecture you can read about it on The Green House web site http://www.nbm.org/ or plan to visit the Green House exhibit, which is currently showing at the National Building Museum but will be traveling soon. http://www.nbm.org/Exhibits/greenHouse2/greenHouse.htm
