well sam,
according to me,

its architecture oriented towards the basic things that can be followed over an yrs.with respect to an area and its climate.
ex: there r certain fundamentals which we have to think before u think about fashion or what happening in new world. its for the survival of building in an area.

ECO FRIENDLY: it deals with how u can use the potential of environment or things available in market, such that the out put to the environment is less carbon,VOC,. its basically for not hampering the environment. ( note: the design might not have features which respond to climate or that area)but design is made using stuff which has not hampered environment ( while construction, material construction)

its basically a kind of life style/mindset of using materials/space such that it can be REDUCE, REUSE, includes all the things while we design eco friendly home or sustainable home. But GREEN doesn't restrict just upto the building but a particular human mindset involvement also for the betterment of future environment and preserving the current earth.

I hope i made something clear for u and haven't increased ur confusion more.
