Design

Design comes first. That is, picking products and materials comes after - not before - you've clarified the purpose, massing, orientation, fenestration, and other fundamental qualities of a building project. And good design is not just about beauty and looks; it is built on a foundation of good science, or else it will soon be feeding mold and lawyers. Here are some great resources on the rapidly growing fields of building science, healthy building, life cycle analysis and more.
