Defensive solutios to the environmental problem, solutions which are only and primarily aimed at reducing energy and material consumption, will seldom prove sustainable. They lack a surplus value capable of promoting rapid, widespread acceptance.
Smart solutions, on the other hand, kill two birds with one stone: they lower the environmental load and simultaneously enhance usability. Recent projects show that ecological building can result in a renewed architecture. New building techniques, energy concepts and facade systems are integrated in an innovative way in architecture.
Nevertheless the impact of the environmental theme can be much larger if the ideas about sustainability, biological analogies and self-sufficient systems are carried out more radically. Fresh ideas that oppose the often painfully experienced limitations of the newest environmental rules on the designer. Only with innovative concepts can ecological building be challenging and lose its stigma of Calvinistic frugality. In THEORY you find several descriptions of themes which lead towards a real green architecture.
