Some medicine that was dispensed to me this morning, by phone:
- * this is what struggles are all about.
- * closeness.
reading about passivhaus as i drove past mention of it at the Yestermorrow Design Build School. From what wikipedia tells me, it looks like i missed out on something that would have intrigued me:
The term Passive house (Passivhaus in German language) refers to the rigorous, voluntary, Passivhaus standard for energy efficiency in buildings, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. The standard is not confined only to residential properties; several office buildings, schools, kindergartens and a supermarket have also been constructed to the standard. Passive design is not the attachment or supplement of architectural design, but an integrated design process with the architectural design.
a quick note i just saw from wordpress:
errors are to be expected.
