and more.

The HANNOVER Principles
By William McDonough Architects

We Need a Global Declaration of Interdependence
The Western ideal of comfort and wealth holds a hollow promise for the rest of the world and provides fodder for extremists.

Green Building Principles -- Environmental Impact
Preserving Integrity of Site

Preserving Integrity of Site. Green construction practices disturb as little of the natural environment as possible. A green building project should evaluate the site and determine how the building could best blend in without merely "imposing" the building on the site. One strategy for preserving the integrity of the site is low-impact development that maintains the land's hydrologic functions and reduces stormwater runoff.
