Top 100 Architecture Ideas in November

From Biodegradable Forest Shelters to Dual Sport Facilities

— November 23, 2014 — Autos
This collection of November 2014 architecture ideas puts significant focus on pushing the boundaries of natural and eco-friendly designs. Although there are many different interpretations of this focus from modern and minimalist to rustic and biodegradable, many designers and architects are ensuring that their buildings and shelters are environmentally conscious.

By doing so, these November 2014 architecture ideas not only appeal to those who are passionate about the environment, they also pave the way for designs that continue to put such concerns first. After all, these buildings are meant to stand the test of time. With this in mind, and the dismal statistics about the future of the planet, it is only natural that organic materials and sustainable practices are continually adopted in this industry. What makes it truly interesting are all the different takes.
