Hello world!

Why should new and better quality have a prohibitive cost associated with it?

This is the question that lead me to starting this blog.  I am involved in “Green Building”, which I hesitate to say because it is becoming a marketing line for some and a misrepresented practice.  I think too many people see it as too expensive and limited as far as design.  A lot of great green projects have been shown in magazines, blogs and brochures in recent years, but the really cool ones are expensive and not everyone has the financial means these projects require.  Green can become the standard, people just need to learn more about it, see how accessible it really is and know cool doesn’t have to cost a lot.

I  feel construction, architecture and product design are in transition right now and the time to make them all better is right now.  By better I mean higher quality, more consumer focused and friendly, more efficient, more environmentally responsible and most importantly, more accessible.  Follow along as this blog seeks out buildings, architects, designers, products and ideas that are better.  Feel free to share with me as well.
