A “green” built environment should consider a balance between environmental, social, and economic benefits. Modern buildings that are energy-efficient are desired; however, the buildings must have a healthy indoor environment and use materials that are safe for occupants. Including more environmentally-friendly features in a building may increase its initial cost, but often reduces the long-term operating expenses. Students in the Green Buildings course will discuss several Buffalo building case studies (the US Courthouse, Innovation Center, Burchfield Penney Art Center and Harbor Center) with an evaluation of the positive and negative social, environmental, and economic aspects of the projects.
