green architecture

Architecture in which the design is focused on making a building energy-efficient, so as to reduce its energy consumption, water consumption, operating costs, and environmental impact. Such efficiencies include the maximal use of natural lighting, low-e glass, solar electric systems, energy-efficient lighting systems, energy-efficient ventilation systems including the use of the chimney effect, and newer sustainable materials and techniques that minimize heat loss in buildings.
