Most modern buildings are made to look good with little regard for the impact on the environment. While they serve their purpose, there is no denying that consume too much energy and release greenhouse gases that pollute the air and strangled.But that does not mean that there are designers who strive to enter the building plans that are innovative and represent a minimal threat to the environment. Arup, an independent firm, recently won a contract to design a large hospital in Vienna, North Krankenhaus Wein, leading to a change in the design of the building and the environment as a whole.
