Sustainable architecture has been around for longer than most people realize, but only recently has the idea and mainstream use of the designs gained popularity and a following. Advances in sustainable architecture are making it easier for companies and builders to apply many of the principles and techniques that were once considered eccentric and difficult to their work at all levels. In fact, with more and more buildings being designed in a sustainable way, builders and their clients have recognized the efficiency and budget friendly features these building have and prefer them.

At one time, everything that was sustainable in architecture was on the whimsical and fanciful end of the design spectrum, including homes built from adobe and in the shape of beehives, architectural garbage heaps and buildings entirely covered in futuristic looking solar panels.

Advances in sustainable design have ceased to be eclectic, but at the same time, materials used and design features are advancing and developing faster than most builders can learn about them. The more that these features and designs become known and user friendly, the faster they can be brought to and used by the public.
