Beautiful Architectural Street and Outdoor Furniture

The need to be close to nature is deeply rooted within Man. Regardless of our quest for brand-new innovations to develop taller buildings and ever bigger cities, Man has actually not forgotten nature.

As the awareness for going green becomes more widespread, lots of governments and companies are pursuing green and ecologically friendly policies and organisation practices.

While the Roman empire was remembered for its architecture, engineering marvels of its time and abundant historic heritage, not many know Rome’s essential focus of green areas, parks and gardens. Back in the 15th and 16th century, the rich and powerful class of Rome lived in beautiful homes surrounded by lovely and spectacular gardens and parks.

In the majority of ancient Rome, parks and gardens were cherished and were situated both in the city center and in the outlying areas. Amidst the greenery, marble statues were erected and green shrubs were trimmed in the most imaginative and unique ways.

This desire to be close to nature is close to Man’s hearts. Today’s designers still show this love for nature by frequently incorporating components of natures in the cities and structures they develop. Parks and green open spaces are treatments for our busy souls in the concrete city jungle.

In today’s modern world, despite Man’s search for ever more concrete jungles and ever taller buildings that keep breaking the world record, Mankind’s desire be close to Nature is still obvious today just as it remained in the past. Designers will constantly include components of natures amidst our city landscape. Check out any modern metropolis today and it will not be difficult to discover a green sanctuary for you to fulfil your need for peace and harmony.

Green Architecture

Green architecture, philosophy of architecture that promotes sustainable energy sources, the conservation of energy, the reuse and safety of building materials, and the siting of a building with consideration of its influence on the environment.

In the early 21st century the building of shelter (in all its types) consumed majority of the world’s resources– translating into 16 percent of the Earth’s freshwater resources, 30– 40 percent of all energy supplies, and 50 percent by weight of all the raw materials withdrawn from Earth’s surface. Architecture was also responsible for 40– 50 percent of waste deposits in landfills and 20– 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.

Lots of architects after the post-World War II building boom were content to erect emblematic civic and corporate icons that commemorated profligate consumption and omnivorous globalization. At the turn of the 21st century, however, a building’s environmental integrity– as seen in the way it was developed and how it operated– ended up being a crucial factor in how it was evaluated.

By the mid-1980s and continuing through the ’90s, the variety of ecological advocacy societies significantly broadened; groups such as Greenpeace, Environmental Action, the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, and the Nature Conservancy all experienced blossoming memberships. For architects and builders a considerable turning point was the formula in 1994 of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements, established and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council. These requirements offered measurable requirements for the style and construction of ecologically accountable structures.
