The Future - Green Buildings, Miami

11.12.06

Sweet. Found this beautiful piece of art and tech over at Inhabit under the Architecture section of blogs I follow <---shameless plug, use the drop down menus. Besides being somewhere I'd like to live, this place stands out for me because it reminds me of the fact that we don't need to build completely self sufficient buildings yet. We just need to start making buildings that use alternative self-sufficiency the majority of the time. Learning to rely on solar, wind, and hydro isn't that hard and lots of people do it. So ask your city planners why they want to build those ugly highrises relying on natural gas for heating instead of geothermal? Ask your architect why he wants to rely on electricity from coal-burning energy plants instead of solar panels? After all, its not as if we don't know what the alternative will be....
