Why come to study to our course?
Did you know?
• Sustainable architecture often incorporates the use of recycled or second hand materials, such as reclaimed lumber and recycled copper.
• Sustainable architecture focuses on the on-site use of waste management, incorporating things such as grey water systems for use on garden beds, and composting toilets to reduce sewage.
• Concurrently, the recent movements of New Urbanism and New Classical Architecture promote a sustainable approach towards construction, that appreciates and develops smart growth, architectural tradition and classical design.
• Solar water heaters can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for a home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use—sunshine—is free.
An active solar collector system can produce about 300 to 380 liters of hot water per day.
• The longevity of construction materials (whether new or recycled) is an important factor which determines the overall sustainability. Durable construction materials are a one-time investment as they reduce or eliminate the need for repairing and maintenance work, increasing the longevity of the structure.
