2013 Will See a Lot of Sustainable Design

Leading media outlets are predicting that sustainable design will increase in 2013. Here are some notable events and trends to watch:

  • National Sustainable Design Expo. This event, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), takes place on the National Mall in Washington D.C. It takes place in April 2013, so maybe the cherry blossoms will be in bloom!browse
  • Sustainable Design Assessment Teams. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) started SDAT to focus on issues of sustainability in varied communities. For more info, visit the AIA website.
  • Solar panels. Inhabitat predicts that solar panels on rooftops will increase in number. In related news, integrated solar chargers may appear on more batteries.
  • Winter gardens. Fresh food can be obtained all year from winter gardens. And the lack of shipping means fewer carbon emissions. Plus, they can be a beautiful addition to a home’s landscape!
