Every great architect is-necessarily—a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time.  -Frank Lloyd Wright

Energy-Efficient Design.

Another aspect of high-performance design is energy efficiency. There are a number of building options and technologies available to achieve this goal. Eliminating wasted space is the first step. Creating a tight building envelope through superior insulation and sealing practices, advanced framing, and alternative structural systems further conserves energy.

Other approaches that conserve and even generate energy include daylighting, passive and active solar designs, and alternative heating and cooling systems such as radiant flooring or geothermal heat pumps. Because each approach has benefits and drawbacks, architectural guidance is essential for determining which technologies best meet design and performance objectives.
