77 Ecotecture Triumphs

The Future Of Architecture Is Definitively Green

— January 8, 2011 — Eco
Ecotecture is the skillful fusion of traditional design concerns and green ideas, with many ecotecture triumphs leading the way to a more eco-conscious culture.

Regardless of their variations, each of these ecotecture triumphs shares an ultimate goal: to design effective, efficient, and awesome buildings that succeed on more levels than mere aesthetics.

Implications - Ecotecture refers to architecture and structures bearing green elements that meet the increasing environmental concerns of the consumer market. It seems that the mass eco consciousness of consumers is growing daily, causing demand for environmental innovation in all facets of almost every industry. If the green movement has changed the face of architecture so drastically, how could it change other industries?
