Gallery: Architect Magazine Unveils Top Green Achitecture List!


Omega Center for Sustainable Living

Located in upstate New York, the Omega Center for Sustainable Living grabbed 4 votes in the survey. Achieving both LEED Platinum and Living Building Challenge Certification, the center is a state-of-the art environmental education and water reclamation facility that works to educate visitors on Omega’s ongoing environmental initiatives, including innovative wastewater strategies.

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.
