The Green Building concept is the most important selling point today in the Israeli real estate market. In my opinion, it is nonsense. I have many potential clients demanding grey water recycling but I am resisting them. Greywater is dirty water and stinks.
The pic shows a Spanish green project. The concept was to create a green living shade (see model). Reality is a bare skeleton of asymetric, disharmonic giant toothpicks in the air. I wonder how to they imagined to maintain the plants, how they would clean dead leaves, what if the leaves collect dust, what with the dirty pidgeons nesting in front of one's window. Windows are supposed to let in the air, the light, the sun, the sky, the sea, the mountains.
