AIA Green Building Awards 2008

Each project in the 2008 "Top Ten Green Projects" awards by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) was evaluated on ten measures, documented extensively on the COTE Web site. These include design innovation, community context and land use, longevity, bioclimatic design, water and energy conservation, materials, and indoor environment. The ten winners — plus one honorable mention — approach sustainable design through an exemplary integration of architecture, technology, and natural systems. One of this year's winning projects, the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center, a LEED Platinum-certified environmental education center near Baraboo, Wisconsin, designed by The Kubala Washatko Architects, Inc. This beautiful project, aided by the deeply forethoughtful stewardship of Leopold himself, has apparently the highest number of LEED certification points of any new building to date, at least as of late 2007.
