Green Living > Architects & Building Designers

Architects and designers that focus on environmentally-conscious designs and construction practices. Green buildings are constructed with the goal of creating comfortable living spaces while maintaining the health of the environment, and that of the people living in them. Many factors are considered when building green. Examples include location and accessibility, energy usage, material selection and sourcing, water conservation, land preservation, indoor air quality, and waste management. The US Green Building Council developed a measurement system, the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), to assess the sustainability of buildings. LEED is now a widely recognized certification program for eco-buildings.
