Building Codes for a Small Planet

David Eisenberg discusses the impacts of construction and development on the environment. Some of his examples will surprise you.

Length: 6:00
Produced By: 5th World Networking & Multimedia

In this clip from the DVD, Building Codes for a Small Planet, David Eisenberg advocates for the building code community to adopt a set of principles moderating the negative impacts of construction and development. A good initial principle, Eisenberg suggests, is that “buildings should do no harm.”

To learn more about Eisenberg’s work or to purchase his DVD visit the Development Center for Appropriate Technology.
