Ecological architecture

Ecological architecture

A concern with how ecological properties impact the building, its occupants, and the environment. The ecological elements are selected from natural or minimally processed earth resources—biodegradable, renewable, and clean elements with low-embodied energy. Elements consist of the soil and landscape, site selection, water resources, and waste management.
