And as we do, let's get creative, think out-of-the-box and inspire a whole new world. Can we do that with buildings? This article would suggest we can, very much. Though the article does not talk specifically to the sustainable design, it is clear in its shape, lack of multiple floors, use of light, vegetation, walkability (very nice exercise for everyone), amazing courtyard, surrounding landscape, etc, that it will house some very productive, grounded employees.
Man and machines--our incredible technology--can now unleash innovation on every street corner. Our major systems of commerce can clean rather than pollute, move people without squeezing off walkers and bikers, power mini-grids with wind, solar, hydro, waves, even volcanoes (as you will see in a future post), and reverse our dangerous trends of raising the earth's temperature and water levels. Do we have the will? Stay tuned.
We are on the road tomorrow and this weekend. We hope to update but, if not, we'll be back on Monday.
