The Role of Architecture

     Architecture and construction are a significant contributor to these prob- lems. For example:
  • It's estimated that almost half of all greenhouse gases pro- duced in the U.S. come from the design, construction, and occupation of buildings.

  • The construction of a typical 2,000 square foot home creates 4 tons of construction waste.

  • Products such as plywood cab- binetry can off-gas chemical compounds known to cause respiratory and immune sys- tem problems, and possibly even cancer.
