Today's architectural photograph is a late day exterior shot of sustainable housing I shot for Kwan Henmi Architecture Planning, Inc. Housing in the San Francisco Bay Area is a challenge and here sustainability goes far beyond the materials used. It requires an infrastructure in tune with the neighborhood and the needs of the people in regard to transportation, shopping and recreation.

A holistic approach must be taken to create a walkable solution for the people to live and work here in the coming decades. I am very pleased to see urban design moving in this direction.
