Regenerative Buildings Make Positive Contributions to the Environment

Regenerative Buildings Make Positive Contributions to the Environment | retail and design | Scoop.it
A Vancouver building illustrates how architecture can make an active, positive contribution to the environment.

 It’s great that buildings can minimize harm, right down to being carbon-neutral and zero-emission. But what if they could be designed to take it a step further—to give back to nature and make a positive contribution to the environment? This concept is known as regenerative design.

KieranTimberlake’s U.S. Embassy in London celebrates groundbreaking

KieranTimberlake’s U.S. Embassy in London celebrates groundbreaking | retail and design | Scoop.it

The U.S. Department of State - Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations announced the groundbreaking of the KieranTimberlake-designed U.S. Embassy in London on Nov. 13.

The design places the Embassy building at the center of the Nine Elms site and develops the surrounding area into an urban park that honors the English tradition of urban parks and gardens as the context for civic buildings. The paving about and within the Embassy site utilizes the familiar limestone in many London walks and parks. London Plane trees provide shade and form at the perimeter and along Nine Elms Lane, as well as the walk to the south that connects the site to Vauxhall Station, the nearest Tube stop."
