Known for his multitude of Hollywood roles, Dennis Quaid now also uses his talents hosting TV’s “Viewpoint”. The program is serves as an educational documentary format that highlights numerous topics that impact people around the world. Soon the show will dip into sustainable architecture. Experts on the show will discuss how innovations in architecture are leading to the development of sustainable buildings.
The goal of creating sustainable buildings is to reduce or entirely avoid the depletion of essential resources like water, energy, raw materials, and land, as well as to create structures that are safe, livable, comfortable, and will last for many years to come. Some architects are designing buildings that allow the ability to grow greenery on the outer walls and roof. These green surfaces help with insulation, climate control, and retention of storm runoff.
Other examples of sustainable buildings are those equipped with the ability to recycle and filter water from showers, sinks, and washing machines. This water can then relive a second life by providing water for outdoor irrigation systems and flushing toilets. Reusing water in this capacity helps to cut down on overall water consumption.
Sustainable living is the key to preserving essential resources. “Viewpoint” will share more details about the innovations used in creating sustainable structures in the upcoming episode.
“Viewpoint” with host Dennis Quaid is reviewed before broadcasting to a large viewing audience. The informational show has accepted multiple awards for its endeavors.
