Think Tank Designs - Your Green Solution

By: Thinktank Designs  09-12-2011

Sustainable design isn't just for houses! Commercial storefronts, lakeside resorts, parks and playgrounds, even universities and government buildings are all taking advantage of the aesthetic and economic benefits of a proper green design. You can help establish sustainable architecture in your own city or neighborhood. "New Urbanism", which is also known as "traditional neighborhood design", is a return to the traditional methods of passive social architectural design, designed to mix residential and commercial uses, with maximized use of existing natural features, and a minimized use of any sort of automotive transportation.
