At its most basic level, we understand sustainable design as intentional measures aimed directly at reducing energy consumption. This includes all efforts to curb devastating rates of air and water pollution, greenhouse gases and waste related to design, whether it be through low carbon design, green buildings, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) or 3-star type initiatives.
Thanks to research carried out by the logon lab, we know that energy consumption is directly linked to design. Also, based on the projected 60% urbanization rate of China’s population by 2030 , on our understanding that 50% of materials extracted from the earth are consumed by the building sector and 60% of all waste comes from building related activities , we know we can no longer responsibly serve the architecture design industry without changing our way of proceeding with great design. For these and further compelling reasons, which you can read here, logon is a strong believer that sustainable design starts with quality materials that are durable and energy efficient, implemented profitably for our client and greatly benefiting both the user’s spendings and our environment’s finite resources.
