Advice were made to utilize those designs, materials, methods, energy and spaces that are persistently useful to the surrounding ecosystem and communities. The ideas forwarded are to ensure that the present actions may not have negative consequences for future generations. These should be with the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability.
