A Design of Sustainable System towards Green Architecture

Xu Tan and Songwen Tan

Abstract—Regarding the world-wide environmental issues, the modern architecture has entered a place of technology forming a sustainable architecture. Sustainable systems designed for the buildings have been largely carried out to reduce waste emissions. As most effort is spent on utilizing the natural resources, the resources from building itself have been neglected. In this work, we present a design of sustainable system focusing on the resources from building itself. Spatial arrangement as a key design factor for sustainable buildings is considered in the building design. Using the knowledge of civil and environmental engineering, kitchen waste is mixed with toilet sewage in a special sewerage system connected with a wastewater treatment system. The biogas produced by the wastewater treatment system is designed to be collected and used for power generation. This work may suggest an idea to reduce waste emissions and energy consumption for sustainable buildings towards an advanced green architecture.

Index Terms—Design, spatial arrangement, sustainable architecture, wastewater treatment.
