What is Green Architecture?

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
