Indiana Green Bank Uses Wind, Solar + Geothermal

I call dibs on this prediction: to the extent that banks can keep themselves from drowning financially, we’re going to see a huge proliferation of green branches over the next five years.  The guy on the video uses the word "fad", but I think we all know it’s more than that.  This branch here, First Federal Savings Bank, is located in Mishawaka, Indiana and just opened last week.  The local press gave the retail pad some pretty positive coverage, as you can tell from the images, video, and diagram.  The LEED Registered, $2.5 M branch relies on a wind turbine, solar panels, energy efficient windows, Agriboard compressed-straw panels, permeable pavers, and geothermal heating and cooling.

[Videos] Some Green Prefabs by MKD

I’ve got 3 super-fresh, green prefab videos for your viewing leisure.  Two videos are of MKD’s Glidehouse, which is factory-built in roughly 10-14 months at a cost similar or less than traditional site-built homes.  The other is of the Sunset Breezehouse, which has the butterfly roof and central breezeway that blurs the interior with the exterior.  Pretty cool videos — it’s nice to have Michelle Kaufmann herself blogging these prefab experiences.

[Video] BedZED Zero Energy Homes

You've probably already heard of BedZED, but have you seen it?  Feel free to watch a short little video about the cutting-edge community. 

BedZED is a 100-home, sustainable community in Beddington (UK) that's designed to be a Zero Energy Development.  Hence the Bed and the ZED. 

The colorful wind-driven ventilation system gives it a quirky, kind of playful look — but don't be fooled: This joint is all business.  Most of all, residents appear to enjoy the sense of community and quality of life.

[Video] Peter DeMaria Talks About Cargo Container Design and Sustainability

In this interview, G Living sits down with Peter DeMaria to talk about his work using containers in modern home design and construction.  I was really impressed with DeMaria — he tells you everything you ever wanted to know about container architecture and talks about scalability, sustainability, mold, termites, insulation, design, etc.  If you're thinking about using containers in your project, the ones mentioned in this interview cost about $900 – $2500 and are about 320 sf per unit.  Great video!
