Green architecture is an innovative approach to design which redefines buildings as a source of energy instead of a sink of financial and environmental resources. As it stands today, buildings in the United States account for 40 percent of all the energy consumed, highlighting the profound ecological footprint of our current consumption patterns. With increased awareness of alternative energy sources as a key component to the United States' national security agenda and to addressing issues of climate change, green architecture is quickly emerging as an attractive, cost-efficient, environmentally-friendly solution.
