Why living and sustainable architecture?

Living and sustainable architecture encompasses two ideas.

Living relates to different communities living and sharing in close proximity. It implies a social contract between two different groups. For example between socially minded students and senior citizens; or between young families and people with learning disabilities that still allow them to live independently.

Sustainable architecture refers to the living spaces. In a world of increasing energy prices and diminishing resources, we want to have the best, sustainable environment.

Articles in this blog will reflect people, institutions and events that I have attended with these interests in mind.

I would like to thank Sandra and Leif Tollé, of the German company is Tollé GmbH, who introduced me to this concept and inspired a continued interest beyond our collaboration.
