They are innovative and the views are gorgeous. I envy that they are so energy efficient yet at the same time I have to ask-are such big homes necessary? Do people rally need home stat big even if they are energy efficient?

Well, is this really green. Why would anyone believing in sustainability build such a mega-monstrous house in a totally green area and start a human colony, thus contributing to the habitat destruction. Think of all the birds that might crash into those windows, animals scared running.
Also, these are all houses for the mega rich. What about those that have great ideas that would like to build a green house on a small scale, but do not have the financial clout.

Though the architecture in these is exciting, most of them were too big for me to not scoff at the concept that they could be considered environmentally friendly. Compared to what?

I'm not certain that any house bigger than 1,200 square feet should be considered green, unless there are multiple units. And I don't have recycle products, I do have many antiques, does that make me green?

I live in one half of a duplex. There are three bedrooms, a bathroom, galley kitchen and a great room. The area is about 800 sq ft. My dream home would be about 1200-1500 square feet. I looked at those green houses and I know with all certainty that I would not want one. Look at all of those windows! I just would not want to clean them.
