Description

Sustainable Architecture or Bio-construction. Living as close as possible to a green or natural area is highly recommended for mental health. Good architecture is considered to be that which blends in perfectly with the surrounding area. Nature can be integrated into architecture indirectly with environmentally friendly elements. There is the option of constructing buildings with vertical gardens that integrate this green habitat into the structure itself, whether it is a façade, roof, etc., and of including natural elements inside the building. When architecture is in tune with the location, it seeks to respect the landscape, limiting the footprint of its intervention, camouflaging its presence or building with local materials. Indeed, today's buildings and cities endeavour to be respectful of their surroundings, uniting the environment with architecture. In some cases, this union goes beyond respecting the natural beauty that surrounds them and the intention is to establish a dialogue and consider the space as just another architectural element. This practice seeks to transform mechanisms of conventional architecture, using materials focused on sustainability, taking into account the needs of the environment and climatic factors, renewable energies and new technologies. The optimisation and efficiency of resources not only benefits the environment, but also transforms nature, at a time when sustainability is becoming an urgent necessity in order to reverse the deterioration of the environment. This book features various projects that show us how to meet the needs of the times, of society and of our well-being. Nature shelters and transforms us as much or more than we try to transform nature.
