Aluminum is probably the least "Green" building material in existence on this planet - with an extreme high level of "Embodied Energy". At the same time aluminum extraction and processing produces a toxic environment for people living near the processing plants - which of course are "Third World" countries - exploitation.

Erskine defines architect as a person who loves people - how can a person love people as they destroy local economies while at the same time pollute thier environment?
