This is awesome, thanks for all the photos. I have been inspired and have set out to build a GREEN headquarters for my businesses. I'm keeping a journal of my journey online at Homeskape.com I would love for you to cover my story when I begin building. Thanks for the beautiful ideas. Go Green! -Nicholas Coriano
great designs!! wish i can see these personally..
Who said we can’t enjoy the beauty but in a good way, here comes the green architecture to combine between the useful functions with the nice appearance, considering the environmental issues.
Have it's own Aesthetic value and Architectural view interesting!!!
It is very intersting approach !
cool!environmental concerned must be the first priority for it will bring us beauty in our nature and yet that will add up to the essential designs that we were trying to portray!...love it!
i do hope that in the decades to come, this green architecture will be embraced by most construction firms . So that we're not devatstating the nature but instead we put on such bedazzling structures which can be both beneficial to the environment and to the environment.
I am so happy to join you!! i am one of the person who love best architectural desing and i am the one who wants to be an architect. so pleas make me to know more in this filed. thanks.

We humans have the ingenuity and now we need the collective will to overcme our environmental problems.
