sustainable design, green building, building materials
The BuildingGreen website is an excellent resource for well-documented information on sustainable design and architecture. Some articles and product reviews are free to the general public, while others are available to paid members. I enjoy their wide range of interesting topics, and I have gotten a lot of use out of "The BuildingGreen Guide to Insulation" which they offer for sale at $97 to nonmembers and $67 to members.
