    Marcus Hiles says that the early pieces of planned communities in the United States were seen in St. Augustine in the year 1565. During the industrial revolution, company towns like Gary, Indiana were the sites of technological inventions and economic passion. The initial modern communities appeared during the Florida land upturn of the 1920s in Southern Florida, when the famous Miami suburbs of Coral Gables, Opa-locka, and Miami Springs were fully planned with themes to emulate the look and architecture of Spain, Arabia, and Mexico. The Great Depression saw the Federal Government build model towns in West Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio, and Wisconsin in order to lower the impact of the economic downturn on coal miners, construction workers, and their families. The distant regions of Oak Ridge, TN; Richland, WA, and Los Alamos, NM were built during World War II to accommodate the families of the scientists, engineers, and industrialized workers of the Manhattan Project. Today, planned cities cover the country, plus the nation’s capital of Washington, D.C., and the state capitals of Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Utah, Florida, and Texas.

    The most recent developments in architectural design are inventions that are convenient to maintain and economical. Marcus Hiles has witnessed the spike in demand for open-air spaces that are workable and also cut expenses. Ecological and preservation choices for example rainwater/graywater harvesting and permeable pavement are frequently followed methods. By using rooftop collection structure, rainwater harvesting sends wetness from the air for storage in a well to be disinfected and reused on-site. Graywater uses home wastewater and sends it to lavatories and non-drinking purposes, reducing fresh water needs and saving resources on purification. A worthy idea for eco-friendly construction, permeable paving, goes back to thousands of years to an era when citizens first assembled roads by putting stones in beds over the ground. The technique allows the rain to pass through tiny openings among four layers of purification (paving material, gravel, fabric, sand) before getting soaked by the earth underneath. Its pros include lowering runoff and pollution, limiting the flow of storm water to gutters and drains, refilling local groundwater supplies and providing a skid resistant surface for walkways, patios and driveways; their several striking patterns often feature crushed stone, brick, and recycled concrete.

    Carbon intensive fuel sources, coal and natural gas account for over 60% of the electricity available worldwide. Nuclear, hydro, wind and solar make up for cleaner power, but the process of obtaining them is too expensive for the average American. In its place, Marcus Hiles proposes smart and limited use of lights, refrigeration, entertainment and cleaning appliances. Just by switching from old, incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent lights can decrease up to 80% of the energy required to operate them, and new light emitting diodes (LED) work even better. Fridges and freezers can be made more effective by not adjusting them too cold, making sure they are properly sealed, are well defrosted, and situated in the coolest area possible. Televisions, computers, phones and other technology must be turned off and unplugged when not in use, as even their standby use can be major. Laundry machines and dishwashers usually have very high wattage, and their need makes it difficult to limit their use. However, decreasesin energy usage can be made by selecting the coldest temperature achievable, and by only washing full loads.
