Gallery: Architect Magazine Unveils Top Green Achitecture List!


Beddington Zero Energy Development

With 7 points total, the Beddington Zero Energy Development/BedZed is an impressive residential and office space development in the London borough of Sutton. Designed by architect Bill Dunster, it is a carbon-neutral community with lots of green spaces, recycling facilities, water saving fixtures, and a legally-binding green transport plan.

Lance Hosey, like all of us, was a little perturbed at the Vanity Fair A-List, which gave no real credit to green architecture and was more about celebrity architecture than anything. So Hosey decided to conduct his own survey and asked 150 green building experts and advocates — including architects, engineers, educators, and critics from the U.S., the UK, Europe, and Asia — to name “the five most-important green buildings since 1980,” using whatever criteria they liked. He took the first 52 responses, just like VF did and compiled a list of 18 buildings.
