Raymond Smith on Sustainable Architecture
What does it really mean? How does it translate practically in the build environment today?
Raymond Smith is of the opinion that the term “sustainability” is rather misunderstood and often abused. In this video he mentions the various laws that manage the impact of development on rural or natural resources and also talks about the different kinds of approaches, such as
- Biodegradable structures, which uses only natural materials and technologies; and
- Green building, which focuses more on the responsible management of resources and employs various technologies and methods to mitigate impacts.
