'Green architecture' could be the solution to global warming that everyone is looking for - people just need to get on board.
Believe it or not, ‘green architecture’ has the potential to sustain the health of millions in the future. Or at least that’s its mission. Studies show that by the year 2050, our world’s population is expected to exceed nine billion. With that information in mind, our world must find new ways of adaptation. By that year, buildings will need to meet a demand for high indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for growing populations, especially in developing nations and other urban locations. Why is this necessary? Well, the quality of a building’s environment is closely measured, just like the well-being of those who occupy this work or living space. By using this information to work towards a positive impact for the future, decisions on plans for eco-friendly and energy efficient buildings will help to create better quality living for indoor populations around the world, while also connecting humans to the nature that surrounds them.
