Sustainable design and solutions focusing on the environment, architecture with a "green" heart. [1] What do the current sustainable design trends look like? Here are a few of the biggest sustainability trends that are redefining commercial architecture. [2] This year’s trends underscore the fact that sustainable design is shifting to meet the environment’s needs, and they?re indicative of where the Architecture & Design industry is headed as a whole. [2]

Due to the ever-growing interest in sustainable design, buildings now have more options than ever for pursuing certifications that prioritize environmental friendliness and wellness. [2] Whereas sustainable design aims to create more eco-friendly buildings, biophilic design works to make buildings healthier for humans. [2] Many buildings are susceptible to flooding and other natural disasters due to climate change, so resiliency is fast becoming a key focus for sustainable design. [2] Many built environments are turning to sustainable design chiefly to adapt to climate change. [2] Sustainable design is about more than green building materials and environmental initiatives. [2] Chris DeVolder, managing principal of HOK’s Kansas City practice and sustainable design leader for Sports + Recreation + Entertainment, spoke with Ken Belson about the impact sports venues, with their physical and cultural prominence, can have on the broader green building movement. [7] The article examines how new facilities like the LEED Platinum Mercedes-Benz Stadium can serve as showcases for sustainable design and shine a light on climate change–while also saving owners money on operations. [7] Each year, sustainable design trends become more and more prominent, This year, sustainable design is leading. [2] Sustainable design trends often cross paths with biophilic design, which is also one of the largest trends this year. [2] Want to know the latest on education and urban design trends? We?ll send you a monthly e-newsletter with actionable ideas about integrated sustainable design. [8]

Both sustainable and biophilic design involve utilizing natural elements within design, although the two have different objectives. [2]
