Architecture is simply a tool. Even the most ecofriendly buildings and intellectual plans are going to fail if the people are ignorant. Technical solutions have always been there and will become more precise in the future.

This might sound like an obvious solution or might not even sound like a solution. But it really needs to be penetrated at an individual level. Buildings are the physical embodiment of people living in it.
