    Green Projects Honored for Sustainable, Energy-Efficient Designs

    June 28, 2007

    AIA Commitee on the Environment (COTE) national advisory group adjunct members Greg Mella, AIA, and Catriona Campbell Winter presented this year’s Top Ten Green Projects—architecture’s best-known recognition program for sustainable design excellence—at the National Building Museum on June 21, 2007.  Winners are selected based on qualitative and quantitative measures, with categories including Sustainable Design Intent & Innovation, Land Use and Site Ecology, Energy Flows & Energy Future, and seven others. Attendees learned why COTE’s measures are important, how they can be applied in projects, and what methods have worked to reduce energy use in specific regions and places.  Look over COTE’s presentation to learn about the winners.
