The American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently announced its annual list of the greenest buildings, sending the eco-design enthusiasts among us into prolonged daydreams of reclaimed timber and geothermal heating.
The winners, a varied crop ranging from a civil engineer building to an apartment complex for seniors, embody the AIA's commitment to rethinking the way we interact with our built environments, public and private, commercial and residential. Easy on the eyes, as well as the environment, these buildings serve as a great example of what can happen when we design with the future in mind.
