The television series “Breaking Bad” represented an important chapter in catapulting actor Bryan Cranston to fame, as his interpretation of the superb character Walter White was a complete delight. But beyond his acting skills, the actor is a faithful follower of sustainable architecture. Although he owns many properties distinguished for being passive, his prefabricated house on the coast of Ventura, California, stands out.
