It contains within it two key concepts: the concept of "needs", in particular the essential needs of the world's poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and the idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment's ability to meet present and future needs." Sustainable architecture is design and construction that supports these goals. Also known as green architecture or environmentally sensitive architecture. Through the use of building technologies, design strategies, and materials it seeks to minimize the impact we have on the environment.
