How about building buildings that are responsive to their environment!
Homes and buildings that are so well insulated and tightly built that
the Solar direct gain is enough to heat them,and there is sufficient
mass enclosed in them to absorb the excess and reradiate the heat at
night so that the house or building is in equilibium,warmed by the Sun
..and how about integrating PVs into the proper roof angle so that
they serve as roofing and fit the lines of the building instead of
having to tack them on later in the coming years,,and since water will
be more scarce in future,design to Catch the Rain and store it...and
how about including Garden rooms to Clean the Air,grey watered
