The Hearst Tower by Foster + Partners has long been one of our favorites momuments to green design inspiration since it opened in 2006 — it was the city’s very first LEED-certified skyscraper. So you can imagine our delight when we were invited to take a private tour of the iconic Norman Foster building – hit the jump to browse through our exclusive photos and take your own insider tour through this beautiful green skyscraper.
