the word ‘sustainability’

sitting in review and hearing the word ‘sustainability’ thrown around as though it was an accepted concept, or defined term. this is sustainability. this design ‘works’ with sustainability. as though if a house has solar panels or is made of strawbale, then it is ‘sustainable’. there’s so much more to it than that, and i’m beginning to understand the enormous debate surrounding this word. i bet i’d be placated if presenters said ‘this house saves energy in ways x, y, and z by being made of straw bale, or have these benefits because of modular construction.’
