Sustainable design is a collective process
whereby the built environment achieves unprecedented levels of
ecological balance through new and retrofit construction, with the goal
of long-term viability and humanization of architecture. Focusing on the
environmental context, sustainable design merges the natural, minimum
resource conditioning solutions of the past (daylight, solar heat, and
natural ventilation) with the innovative technologies of the present.
The desired result is an integrated “intelligent” system that supports
individual control with expert negotiation for resource consciousness.
