An eco friendly building

I got a chance to visit the office of The Energy and Research Institute in Bangalore. My first ever visit to an eco friendly building.

The building is an amazing piece of architecture. The building is spread across multiple levels with skylights spreading natural light across all but a few places in the building. There are terrace gardens and provisions for greenery at various places in and around the building. Why cant more buildings be built this way? These buildings consume far less energy in lighting, air conditioning besides being a great place to work.

More on green buildings, here and here.
