É o que a nossa sociedade precisa: saber lidar com os problemas do planeta para a busca do Desenvolvimento Sustentável.

I especially enjoyed the article about M Moser Associates and how her firm is integrating sustainable design from conceptual start of project. From a contractor's perspective, having the architectural firm aware of costs from the beginning is very important to the built cost. While the metrics are there for cost savings over the life of the building, it can still be difficult to convince and owner to go for the higher initial financial outlay., Johnson Controls, Inc.

I love this magazine I wish more politicians read it, Johnson Controls, Inc.
