Abstract

This paper compares two approaches to green affordable housing. "Transparent" refers to green housing that is perceptually little different than its un-green counterparts but meets the requirements and standards of green building. A transformative approach is one in which the housing is markedly different from its non-green contemporaries. Petersburg Commons represents a "transparent" approach; the process and product are incrementally improved over the conventional approach. Houses are "green" by standard, but they do not look overtly different nor are there dramatic changes in the way residents are required to interact with their home or community. Bedford Mews is more aggressive in its "green" stance; the form and character of the development is different from that of adjoining neighborhoods, and residents are expected to interact differently within their house, their development, their neighborhood and their region; it is intended for people who want to transform the way we use natural resources.
