How do architects effect the environment?

    Architects affect the environment the same way that everyone else does: by doing something!  Leaving a “carbon footprint” can be done by riding an airplane or buying a cup of coffee, and it certainly can be done by erecting or renovating a building.

    Unless proper measures are taken, the amount of energy used in the construction of a building is not considered to be proportionate to the size of the project, which is to say most buildings are produced inefficiently.  The primary cause of this is waste: A majority of the material brought to a construction site ends up as waste.  Furthermore, transporting that material uses a tremendous amount of energy.
