Green Architecture Movement in AEC: The Rethink
This article seeks to raise awareness of issues relating to ‘green’ (sustainable) architecture in ASEAN countries. The pending establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 is likely to stimulate increased economic activity, causing population movements and increases in the population of major cities with associated increases in energy consumption. The built environment will need to respond to these changes to enable a sustainable future. This article presents an overview of the current state of green architecture and sustainable design within ASEAN.
