"When you think of green architecture, do you picture a more energy-focused but boring-looking building? You shouldn't. Not only can green architecture help protect the environment, it can also lead to some amazing designs! Current green building takes the building’s impact into account. That means, the design considering elements like energy conservation, indoor air quality, site management, building materials and water conservation. But, is it good enough in the near future? Soon, it requires more than that!"
