As we know from reading the containers of dishwashing detergents,
something can be called ‘Green’ and not help to heal a tattered
landscape or bring more life to an ecosystem. This is as true in our
built ecosystems and architectures as anywhere else in product design,
and this should not surprise us; ever since Le Corbusier’s ‘Machines for
Living’ popularized the notion, the places we live, sleep, eat, love,
celebrate and mourn have been products, commodities, marketed like any
other.

But not until fairly recently have we been forced to be so discerning
when judging the intent of greenwashing language and labels on building
plans.
