Growing concerns about the environmental aspects have done a great deal to open minds to the concept of designing green. Interest in green is coming from myriad fronts leading to incremental changes in public, environmental policy and shifts in site, to building design and a new awareness of the role green can play. As cities expand to the edges of the countryside, green roofs and facades represent an innovative way to preserve green natural space, reduce the impact of development and artificial space and help with purifying air. Green softens urban areas, reduces impervious spaces and contained storm water runoff. These processes need to be controlled and managed.
