SUSTAINABILITY IN ARCHITECTURE
November 26, 2022 - December 31, 2022
“It’s almost like a disaster has to happen to cause the world to start preparing.”
– Michael Reynolds.
Archiol Artuminate has organized this second edition of the sustainable architecture essay competition to spread awareness of the sustainable measures that the construction and building industry needs to adopt to mitigate the harmful impact on the environment.
“If humanity takes the planet down the tubes, I’m dead. I’m trying to save my ass. And that is a powerful force.” – Michael Reynolds.
Building and construction industry has a tremendous impact on the environment. This industry alone contributes up to 23% of air pollution, 40% of drinking water pollution, and 50% of landfill waste; thus, this particular industry must adopt sustainable practices. Sustainable Architecture is an architecture design style developed following environmentally friendly principles.
Sustainable Architecture, also known as Green architecture, aims to minimize the number of resources consumed in the building construction, use, and operation. It also attempts to reduce the harmful effects on the environment. Sustainable architecture is a design style based on the idea of environmentally sound and resource-efficient buildings.
“I think it’s in bad shape. From the skies to the waters, to the happiness of people, the haves and the have-nots. There are so many places on the planet that are trashed beyond repair. The oil spills, the junk, the sewerage, the radioactivity. It just keeps growing.” – Michael Reynolds.

“We should really learn about the Earth (the physics and biology of it) so we can work with it – to make sure we can live here without destroying it.” – Michael Reynolds.
