Lets start with the fact that forty percent of the world´s energy is used by buildings. And that more than fifty percent of the greenhouse gases come from buildings and the construction industry. Now we have a basic understanding of how crucial and important it is to have an eco-friendly building practice. Mexican architectural firm, ReCURSO Studios, understood these eye-opening facts when they set out to design this modern showcase of low impact, sustainable architecture.

Implications - ReCURSO's central focus is raising awareness about how the construction industry works with regard to environmental damage. The company is conscious of the materials used throughout this process, with their newest project boasting a minimal footprint. Hopefully other construction companies will be inspired to think green along the way.
