On May 20, the National Building Museum will open a new exhibit, The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design. Inspired by Alanna Stang and Christopher Hawthorne’s 2005 book by the same name, the show will move beyond traditional exhibition format to give visitors tips, information, and a Materials Resource Room, where they can learn to apply sustainable principles to their own homes and lifestyles.

The centerpiece of the show is a full-scale model of Michelle Kaufmann’s acclaimed Glidehouse, where green building techniques can be seen in the context of a modern home.

But I’m going to have to head down and check this out–thanks!!
