CASE STUDIES IN SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainable living in Virginia
An architectural firm in southwestern Virginia has a strong interest in "green building" of various types, with work including community revitalization planning, lots of renovation projects, and a co-housing project. The firm is involved in a volunteer effort called SLEC (Sustainable Living Education Center) in Floyd, Virginia. SLEC is an evolving model of education focusing on the multiple aspects of "sustainable living". Hands-on exhibits are being developed, such as straw bale construction, wind power, solar power, etc.
