In previous posts we have profiled several Canadian architects who are focused on sustainable design and green buildings, and this post carries on the tradition with our first presentation of a USA architect / planner dedicated to sustainability in architecture and design, DC's The Eisen Group.
If you arrive at The Eisen Group website and feel that you have the wrong company, it's likely you have in fact landed on the wrong site, as there are two companies with the same name:
