"Alternative buildings" refer to those that differ from mainstream modern architecture. They often use natural building materials, with a strong emphasis on sustainable design.

While green buildings most often include high technology as part of their design, alternative buildings more often depend on traditional designs (reflecting wisdom which has evolved over many generations) and creative use of locally available materials and limited resources.
