What Is Eco Architecture?

Eco architecture is a form of architectural practice that seeks to reduce the negative ecological impact of structural development through the use of sustainable construction materials and enhanced efficiency. The Regenerative Leadership Institute states that the practice emphasizes creating structures that complement the environment.

Eco architecture focuses on employing renewable resources like bamboo and wool. The resources used in this form of building and design feature rapid growth rates that exceed traditional lumber forms or are easily accumulated as waste from other processing. The renewable building solutions stressed by eco architecture are becoming the norm in the industry as of 2014.
