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

The Manitoba Hydro Place was another design that impressed the AIA. The most notable aspect of the project was that it was conducted following the guidelines of a formal integrated design process mandated by Manitoba Hydro and modeled on the successful C-2000 program developed by Natural Resources Canada, a department of the Canadian federal government. Manitoba Hydro even hired an advocate architect to document and submit the building for LEED certification resulting in a Gold rating.

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.
