we have refused to update our building methods rapidly enough to ensure that our actions does not have a negative effect on the future generation. In doing so we have created a culture of unsustainable living, where building products, services and utilities lack the means to consume less energy whilst giving out maximum output. One major reason for this is the lack of integration between technology and buildings. It is strange how i find myself asking why in this day and age we are unable to harvest enough energy from our natural environment in order to reduce our carbon footprint? The answer is not too simple, most people think it is not economically viable to destroy and rebuild, others believe it is better to build new buildings rather than fix existing buildings, creating a major problem of abandonment. It is common sense that most energy loss in a building is usually due to bad insulation, as time has progressed we have managed to improve immensely on building insulation, however there are other factors that we have failed to explore more in depth in order to utilize our environment efficiently………….
