Cartea – Building Green

„… it’s not the materials but the builder that makes a building green”

Clark Snell,Building Green

Am vazut o prima previzualizare a cartii  Building Green (cred ca pe Google Books)si nu am fost impresionat. Dar Ina si Sabin ne-au aratat cartea si ne-au imprumutat-o si atunci am fost surprins.  Am citit cartea si am primit o gramada de lucruri minunate. Cartea nu aminteste constructia cu canepa in nici un mod, dar cuprinde multe alte metode si materiale de constructii verzi. Dar cel mai important este faptul ca aceasta carte a fost scrisa cu un apel la bun simt si cu multe imagini educationale care demonstreaza ca bunul simt chiar functioneaza. Cu toate ca se pare ca nu vom folosi in mod direct nici o metoda de constructie descrisa in aceasta carte, vom folosi propria judecata (si bun simt) pentru a face alegeri si a ne relata solutiilor oferite de profesionisti.

Pentru mine, spiritul aceste carti este cel mai bine intruchipat in urmatorul fragment pe care l-am amintit des in diferite conversatii pe care le-am avut de atunci:

„One the biggest sources of our environmental woes is the constant and polluting movement of humans about the planet. To create a sustainable lifestyle, we need to stay put more of the time and derive more of our social, physical and spiritual sustenance from our own backyards. For example, it takes a longtimeto build healthy soil to grow food; to build a network of friends and compatriots that will be the basis for community; to nurture the trees and other plants that will be part of a house’s cooling strategy. These things simply won’t happen if you aren’t sufficiently seduced by your home to stay there for the many years it will take to turn it into a real place that nurtures both its inhabitants and the environment. A „green” house, then, needs to be beautiful, a place that is as hard to leave as a lover and as unthinkable to neglect as your own child.”

Locuind in toata viata mea de adult in apartamente si case inchiriate si acum pregatindu-ma de constructia primei si singurei case din aceasta viata ma pot asocia complet cu acest fragment. Am fost un turist im marea majoritate a locurilor in care am trait pana acum – nereusind sa devin un rezident a unui singur loc.
