Where to look for sustainable building prototypes.

I have said it before, but will repeat it here. If you want to see what basic prototypical massing and form our buildings should be taking, you need look no further than the regional architecture of an area prior to the invention of air conditioning. In general, this should be the starting place for conceptual design of almost any building.

    Put this insight back on top. This conceptual foot in the door has profound meaning and potential. A nice antidote to the information age's greenwash pseudo-technology shell game: unending complexity with little or no meaning.
