“We have been irresponsible for a very long time.” This from Françoise-Hélène Jourda, one of France’s “few specialists in ecological construction,” as quoted over at Planetizen.

Jourda believes green “is going to shake up architectural composition as much as the industrial revolution did. We can no longer refer to the same aesthetic. Buildings will have to be more compact, but it’s up to us to assure that that compactness becomes beautiful… architects are going to have to stop contemplating their navels and produce new forms.”
