Sustainabale buildings

The most talked about concern is global warming. Boils down to architects as opting to design for sustainability and designing green buildings.
What is the aim? If you see, it is almost like asking to design with care; they have a phase before the design process starts. After that, it is planningā€”an essential list of goals to be listed that the building will address. There is an involvement of a LEED specialist who will be there from the planning stage through design and construction and monitor your building scores on its performance.

Sounds good, but remember the specialist will charge you per square ft for monitoring, too, so you must have a budget to keep your certificate green.

They have priorities for site selection, which architects seldom can be part of, as owners usually buy land and then approach the architect. Next, it wants you to try and limit urban growth. That falls under planning and urban design, so architects are never part of the extensions of housing/ commercial zones.

The building needs to have optimum orientation, which is possible as site analysis typically indicates the sides to which sunlight, breeze and views are best. Secondly, they want the development to have a vertical extension rather than spreading and covering land; It is referred to as the FAR requirement. Density is essential. As more people are onto less ground, it will leave better open spaces around the site. However, this also leads to a higher concentration of traffic and infrastructure loads in terms of electricity, gas, and potable water supply with disposal and sewerage systems capacity to accommodate the density. Finally, the most critical part of the high rise is earthquake resistant structures in design and material.
All the consideration seems workable when you have correct data on the material extraction and supply, manufacturing process and disposal of the waste from factories. So, the building is a part that requires a whole set of data.
It may be possible that particular material is sustainable for use yet creates problems during excavation.
We need a new Ministry to enlist and identify all the building construction materials that have the most negligible impact on our surroundings.
They need to train and get less noisy equipment and more efficient construction methods.
This new Ministry has to ask the growth to stop consuming all that is presently wildlife, lakes, fields, and mountains. A cash component will be needed to pay off the owners so that they may not feel deprived of their inheritance. It will support the preservation of these natural resources.

Hence, Green Building is not a single building. Instead, it is a building that states all parts of it are not harming the global climate during construction and afterwards. For an installation of such honesty, we need to work through the industries engaged in construction with data proving them to be saving our planet.

Reflections ( re-post)

Two Mirrors in a room on the opposite walls. I step in a space between two mirrors and see my reflection within a reflection. Stretching endlessly, as if I will disappear but I remain an image in both.As, I turn from one to another to have a little fun in this lock down. I can not tell others what fun it is to play alone, it amuses me and I know that it is silly.

Life is full of mirrors, each show us how we are placed in time. Somewhere we are endless, somewhere we are diminishing in our size,stature and position. As, we cross the images , we know exactly, how we looked in each phase. And the reality is that we can not see ourselves without a mirror, that is exactly how we are seen in life, by another person’s eye.

Life gives us many mirrors to reflect upon.

That person will be simple and straight forward. Always give more than you have earned. Will accept mistakes and ask forgiveness. Never get angry on personal matters but will not like immoral behaviour. This person will be a source of happiness, will make life easy for others. Will be helpful and down to earth. If you ever meet someone with these qualities, you can make out that person is blessed.

Truth ?

Do you Like To Be Honest… Honesty is good…but don’t get it mixed up with being true ..it is not really the truth..I feel..honesty means, to be as it is or as you are..not to be something else..for that would make you a fake..there is a difference between faithful and honest.
That is why , we have a favorite sentence, ” No comments ” . it saves from telling a lie.. Or..when asked a tricky question..” write pass ” . it does trigger a lot of ideas in the person’s mind..but he/she didn’t hear from me.
Why do we stop from answering..is simple. Got two ears and one tongue. Hear more and speak less, and always remember use your brains..to understand not only the question..but the consequences it will initiate..maybe a chain reaction.
Gossips..travel fast and get blown up to a mega size too, slowly people hear it often as rumor then they apply the age old saying..where there is smoke there is a fire ..burning..:))
No smoke no fire.. Honesty is the best policy..and speaking less helps to maintain that šŸ™‚

I am a tree..I am grounded yet free

A tree..when you look at it..you find branches holding leaves..and fruits..housing nest and birds..sometimes kids too..and the roots so deep inside..we fail to even think..although we admire the tree..with its trunk, branches, flowers and leaves..for it provides us with shade..insects walking all over..digging into small holes..do you ever think..how the tree..stands..and shakes..moves..and takes..all that breeze..touching its leaves..and when autumn it gets bare to basic..and we know at its branches..stretching outwardly ..are you a tree..rooted deep..serving so many.standing alone…not moving..just holding together..supporting life..are you ?

Paths in life

Born free..and free to choose. Where to live and how to lose. identityĀ  more than a card or chip..people ask ..where you are from ? Are you a local or on a trip ?

My features are prominent..but others get confused..Asian ..in general..but enemy or friend.. clearĀ  unclear..how can I root again and where is my origin..do I like it ..and if I don’t will I wander away like a leaf blown before autumn ..and want to cling to another tree..I am definitely free..but can hangĀ  only till I fall dead…then what? Will it matterĀ  if I was from mango or maple?

Come to think of it..life on earth is not forever..but more..some believe others don’t..I belong to believers and so I am a bit happy…for the end here will initiate the newĀ  beginning…aĀ  place where souls will be seen…and feel..and enjoy ..the freedom that was sought on earth…I have passed away…and has reached a place..to stay.

Start now..with the one closest to you.

Good people remains pious and are God fearing , thus making them the lights in the darkness . They are good , because they can control theirĀ  desires, wants and disturbing thoughts. Control is the key word, it makes you alert and aware of your action. We do get across people who say,”I didn’t see..didn’t thought..didn’t realize.” What they mean is they have no interest..no responsibility and don’t care for their actions. Some of us nod our head others just shrug shoulder, but if you take a moment and think..that carelessness is “expensive” , it cost in cash and kind.

Question is why we allow people to be careless in life and careful while at school ? Are we not training youngĀ  minds to be responsible and caring , or we are just focused on all subjects and ignore the building up of character. NaggingĀ  never helps, it rather gets repulsive attitude. Understanding does..to actually realize we must get closer and think…now that does drain our mental capacity.

To sit and think..why someone acts in weird ways..why they get upset in small issues..why we get thrashed for an answer that was unexpected..and find reasons..we do not have to be judgmental..all we need is to balance it out.

Sometimes , we experience odd behaviors, those who are rude their work is done promptly but those who areĀ  nice and sweet, people ignore their request. The fear of getting a bashing from a rudeĀ  person is more and the smile of gratitude from a niceĀ  person. Encouraging that once sweet person to become a “RUDE”Ā  . Yes..our actions lead to changes in behavior so we must act with care..carelessness is expensive šŸ˜‰
