Technology has the ability to provide greater impact for less effort; and should be used as a primary tool and motivator in the sustainability movement. Green Information Technology, or “Green IT” aims to solidify this idea by creating and transforming new technology that aims to solve some of the current environmental issues facing humanity. Unfortunately, Green IT users are often stuck in unhealthy work environments that stifle their potential to ideate, create and implement. This is where Einstein's theory that "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it", comes in.
This thesis aims to facilitate these users to begin a sustainable, technological revolution. In order to understand how architecture can begin to create a healthy environment for this niche of telecommuters, the lifestyles, work habits, and developmental successes must be observed. If architecture were to overcome the current limitations, technology may finally have its chance to prove itself as a positive contributor to the movement towards a sustainable future.
