Sustainable Architecture







Sustainable architecture is a section of Green Building & Construction Economics (ISSN: 2737-5021) that includes research on the design approach that seeks to reduce the negative environmental impacts of buildings while maximising their positive effects on the environment and human health. Sustainable architecture aims to produce buildings that are environmentally conscious, resource-efficient, and healthy places to live, work, and play. This strategy can aid in lowering greenhouse gas emissions, conserving natural resources, and enhancing the quality of the built environment.



Current areas of interest include, but are not limited to:


1. Sustainable materials and technologies, such as energy-efficient windows and insulation, solar panels, rainwater collection systems, and green roofs

2. Design elements that promote the health and wellbeing of building occupants, such as natural light, fresh air, and green spaces
