|Abstract:||We are all building the body of civilization. The point of all shelter is to protect the human organism. It is not useful to construct our shelter out of materials that poison us, or to heat it or light it with an energy source that poisons our world. For this time being this is the only planet we have, and our bodies cannot easily survive without it. If we will care for it then it will care for us. The built environment has a tremendous impact on the natural environment. However our buildings can interact more positively with environment if we pay special attention to preserving the site's integrity and natural characteristics, landscaping properly, and selecting materials that have lower embodied energy and those that are produced locally. Our ecological conditions that are specific to a projects location, designers can develop climate responsive buildings, resulting to buildings utilizing less energy and provides a high quality and comfortable environment to occupants.|
