CNU gets Green

December 31, 2008

For those looking for a website that explains green design evolution rather than a techno-revolution, check out Steve Mouzon’s excellent Original Green initiative. He is looking for support so that the ideas presented to the Congress for the New Urbanism (a wonderful organization that promotes true urban principles) may be considered by the Obama transition team. The ideas are simple and persuasive. Traditional buildings were green by necessity.

CNU has been talking about sustainability since its beginnings in the early 1990s, but has not gotten traction with many official organizations such as LEED until recently. Mouzon’s nascent organization is trying to make sure that the new administration, and the design community as a whole, take traditional buildings seriously when looking for “new” ways to build the infrastructure for America’s energy efficient economy.
