Environment friendly building

My office is in a new building, which is designed to be an open classroom, and have no cellphone signal. So after my cell phone desperately searched for signal for a whole day, it run out of power.

So I did some calculation, in my old office, I recharge my phone maybe every 5 days, now I need to recharge my phone very the other day. If I could use the same battery in my old office for 3 years, I can only use it in my new office for about 1 year. Then I need to dispose the useless battery. By shielding the cell phone signal, the architect actually more than doubled waste battery at least from me.

Shall we call this building environment aware and environmental friendly? I think not.
