|Every project must be designed and built with a conscience. Issues including
resource depletion, pollution, energy conservation and community
responsibility must be a part of every building program. We should
build what we need on a practical and spiritual level but always
as a part of a larger community of interlocking responsibilities.
Sustainability means building for our own needs today in a way that
will not compromise succeeding generations from doing the same.
Today, sophisticated design is green design. It is not just about
pretty pictures anymore.
We should design for longevity.
We should build no more than what we need.
We should design for low net energy use.
We should conserve the use of land and water.
We should use products that are recycled or sustainably
We should limit the use of products that produce
We should choose building materials that are
We should plan and build for many tomorrows.
Today is not enough.
