    Sustainable architecture is definitely the way forward. We need more visionaries like Oppenheim to promote the cause. But the truth is most of us are likely to continue living in houses that were built before this trend went mainstream. That means if we want to go green we need to think about affordable measures to improve our houses from an energy consumption as well as health and wellbeing perspective. I’ve found the best action step towards this goal is to sign up for an energy assessment in order to get personalized advice from a qualified professional. In turns out that in some states these are actually FREE! My good friend Kate just went through the process and wrote about her experience and all that she got out of it:

    He received a bachelor of architecture from Cornell University in 1994, and is now the founding principal of Miami-based “Oppenheim Architecture and Design”. When he was starting out at 28 years old, he says “In the beginning you are just glad to get any type of work”.

    Chad Oppenheim is an extraordinary architect. He takes green architecture a step further and not only concentrates on the obvious, as energy use, but explicitly considers the consequences of the material choices on the inhabitants and on the planet. Very often toxic chemicals in building materials and furnishings render architecture obsolete. What is the use of a building if it makes you sick? Green architecture should be the norm. I am looking forward seeing his prototype for the new hotel chain.
