Green Architecture what green and sustainable architecture solutions are suited in the Philippines?

Question by curiousniks: what green and sustainable architecture solutions are suited in the Philippines?
i need a list of green and sustainable architectural solutions that are suited and economical to use in the tropical philippine islands.

i have already though of these in mind:
passive cooling, rainwater harvesting, use of local and sustainable building materials, efficient building methods, argon filled glass panels, water saving bathroom fixtures, insulation (these are correct, right?)

your opinions, thoughts and suggestions about green architecture in tropical countries are appreciated…pls include your sources if possible. THANKS!!

Answer by fred
those you mention are useful components.
the most sustainable solutions for local conditions are usually those employed before the advent of cheap fossil fuels
see The University of the Philippines Building Research Service http://cibmat.awardspace.com/background.htm

if these are applied using a permaculture design process http://www.permacultureph.org/ you should get the solutions you want
