I am seriously starting to get sick of all those green buildings going up. They have the same design as all other buildings, they have the same materials than most other buildings and many of them generate the same rubbish as other buildings.
Being green just because you use low VOC adhesive? Or because you run a chillie bin with refrigerant that is better for the environment? Possibly put some solar thermal element on the roof?
Well, we still use far too much glass, we still use the wrong materials, we still do a wrong design, we still don’t do natural ventilation, and still none of the other great features known to mankind for centuries.
And the contractor especially does not care… rubbish everywhere.
Design & build phase failed – do you think the operation phase will be better?
Even the bin is green: http://twitpic.com/9q0y3s
