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

The Manassas Park Elementary School + Pre-K is a shining example of how students can learn about sustainability right at school. The whole strategy of the building is to ensure that the students are clearly aware of the strategies involved to reduce energy and water usage. Kids are invited to interact with the surrounding forest, the bio-retention area, and understand how the building's energy and water use affect the environment.

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.
