'500 Days of Summer' brings awareness to green architecture
One of the top films featured at Sundance Film Festival this year presented an awareness of green architecture and the emerging industry.
Americans have been encouraged to be environmentally conscious thanks to the recent passage of the American Clean Energy and Securities Act. The movie in question, 500 days of Summer, looks at progressive, sustainable housing solutions.
As reported by Green Building Elements, the film's main character holds forward-thinking ideas and the promotion of green architecture particularly in densely populated cities. The news provider cites his criticism of Los Angeles's urban design.
Meanwhile in the real world, a new green housing project was just unveiled in Georgia. The factory-built structures by New World Home hold platinum LEED certification.
New World Home's first completed building is located in Marietta, Georgia and is the only one of its kind currently in the state.
Michael Natbony , CEO of New World Home, feels the new houses will "create a lasting green legacy" while the "LEED platinum certification proves that it is possible to develop homes that achieve this goal and are aesthetically appealing."
