Robert Stern talks about sustainability

I don't think sustainability is a design aesthetic, any more than having electricity in your building, or telephones, or anything else, says Stern_. It's an ethic, a basic consideration that we have to have as architects designing buildings._ Stern argues in 10 years we're not going to talk about sustainability anymore, because it's going to be built into the core processes of architecture. Advertising sustainability, he says_, will be like an architect getting up in front of a room to proudly proclaim how his buildings didn't fall down._ Robert Stern, architect, teacher and writer, dean of the Yale School of Architecture.
