Living Today + Tomorrow
Chapter Seven explores sustainable living – today, in the Millennium Water Olympic Village, and into the future. The chapter presents interior design and health aspects of the development, including green building finishes, tobacco smoke control and ventilation measures. Next, the net zero building on Parcel 9 is documented – a building whose systems generate as much energy as its occupants consume. From there, we look to the future: “net zero, closed-loop everything?” Based on the experience gleaned from the building of Olympic Village, can sustainable development help restore and protect the planet we call home? What have we learned, and what are the next steps?
