What is green architecture? | 建築 | Scoop.it

Green architecture, or durable construction, has the goal of using nature in a better way, without harming it. A green building has its own life cycle, encompassing everything- from rough construction to the smallest detail, following the laws of comfort and rationality. Passive houses are like living creatures; they are oxygen powered- upon taking in air, they process it, releasing the used air to the outside, keeping the temperature inside steady and disallowing the formation of moisture in the process.
