Sustainable architecture is architecture that seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, and development space and the ecosystem at large. Sustainable architecture uses a conscious approach to energy and ecological conservation in the design of the built environment.
The first step was to find the best spot for my project. My idea was to find a space for a sustainable community that was accessible to anyone. I wanted the residents living in my community to feel connected with nature and to make the least amount of impact to the environment. After looking around and changing my site 3 times i finally found the right one which is right off Mountain creek pkwy in the DFW area it has a perfect ridge that would allow the homes to have very little impact on the environment.
