    Architecture can be green in several ways.  One aspect is to incorporate green building materials like windows which minimize heat loss or make sure that the building is properly insulated.  Another way is to make the physical design more efficient and eco-friendly.  Incorporating large or well placed windows which can reduce the need for artificial lighting or minimizing the space that has to be heated or cooled (ie no vaulted ceilings) will help save energy.  Lastly, the design can incorporate water saving techniques like water saving faucets and collect rain water or dew for use in landscaping.
