Green design strategies are not new to the building industry but represent a renewed importance of the relationship between the environment and buildings. As the climate continues to change, design plays a critical role in solving these issues. The earliest architects understood the importance of siting homes to protect from prevailing winds, while welcoming winter sun and cool breezes. These techniques are passive design strategies. We will discuss passive design as well as active techniques such as solar panels. We will also discuss storm water strategies that help reduce flooding and improve the quality of water that enters our aquifers. The goal is to help children see how small changes in design can have large impacts on our world.
