Green Architecture Features in High Rise Buildings

Green Building Architecture in High rise Structures

High rise buildings support green features to a small extent. Hence it is a bad concept to go for the construction of High rise buildings if we are to incorporate green features into the building. Incorporating various green features could make the construction 5 times more expensive than the cost incurred in regular methods of construction.

Aliens Space Station is an excellent example of the High rise Green Buildings.
