Environmental impact and green design sustainability are assessed through economic analysis. Economics is by definition a social science concerned with analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services AND the thrifty and efficient use of material resources. Therefore the architectural design of real spaces requires that the economic components be considered in the process of creating the design. Economics is a fundamental design factor.

"The greatest architectural creativity springs from respect for the factors that constrain the design."

The Equilibrium [6] of "Appropriate Balance" describes the state of intellectual balance between opposing design forces and actions that is deliberately designed to be in harmonious balance. The artistic balance created by design is theoretically in place for the entire life of the design. To me, it is the artistic soul of the building. I call this artistic soul "Econo-functional Aesthetic Balance" or E-FAB.
