How are environmental concerns affecting architecture today?
The modern world is technologically advanced but faces the issues of global warming and climate change. The carbon emission and heavy use of natural resources is contributing to these issues. Modern architectures require sustainability to be at its core. These architectures are required to be energy efficient. The placement of different architectures need to be thoroughly thought of. To add greenery, there are gardens over the roofs of buildings in different modern architectures. Water is a natural resource that is getting polluted and wasted rapidly. Modern architectures need to support water conservation. The material that is used in the construction also need to be recyclable. Solar technology is used in modern architectures to generate clean energy that is not a harm for the environment like coal or nuclear energy is. More natural light is expected to reach the inner part of the modern architectures so that there is less need for energy use during the day time to light it up.
