Cluster Development an organizational strategy of Green architecture
#1
Role of human beings as manager of the environment , McHarg laid the ground rules for green architecture in his book "Design with Nature" (1969).
 
Cluster Development: Mcharg advocated an organizational strategy, called “cluster development” that would concentrate living centres and leave as much natural environment as possible to flourish on its own terms. 
A development approach in which building lots may be reduced in size and buildings sited closer together, usually in groups or clusters, provided that the total development density does not exceed that which could be constructed on the site under conventional zoning and subdivision regulations. The additional land that remains undeveloped is then preserved as recreational land.
