Gallery: AIA’s Top Ten Green Architecture Projects of 2010

The Michael J. Homer Science and Student Life Center was interesting to the AIA because its sustainability initiatives had as much to do with monitoring and adapting as they have to do with installed systems. Within the first few months of occupancy, the sophisticated energy and water use monitoring program has already helped to identify energy performance issues and several meetings have been held with school maintenance staff, faculty and food service providers to identify areas of overuse resulting in a decline of usage rates. + AIA Top Ten Green Projects of 2010

All of the projects the AIA chose show remarkable achievements in the areas of community, bioclimatic design, daylighting and air quality, good use of healthy materials, and great design for adaptability, versatility, and durability. In other words, everything that you would be looking for in a kick ass green architecture project.
