Green Building Elements is about the construction of green buildings, both in terms of the pieces that go together to make them, and in terms of the ideas and the design behind them. We are interested in all aspects of the built environment and the thinking behind it, from bricks to cities. We also focus on the issue of sustainability, including people, environments, materials, and economies.

Created in 2007 by a LEED Accredited Architect and author, Philip Proefrock, Green Building Elements has been featured on Reuters, TreeHugger, Sustainablog among other highly respected media outlets. Green Building Elements is part of the Important Media Community.

Joshua H. Hill: I‘m a Christian, a nerd, a geek, a liberal left-winger and believe that we’re pretty quickly directing planet-Earth into hell in a handbasket! I’m a 27 year old author and writer from Melbourne, Australia. My first book is in the “looking for an agent” phase right now while I write my second. I also review fantasy books over at Fantasy Book Review (.co.uk). I love words with a passion, both creating them and reading them.
