In late April, the American Institute of Architects unveiled the 10 best green buildings of the past year. Take a look at a slideshow of the winners at FastCompany.
The prize-winning architects used innovative cooling systems, made man-made wetlands, sustainably harvested woods and solar panels, all without any sacrifices in their buildings’ aesthetics.
We’re partial to the way Hopkins Architects and Centerbrook Architects integrated solar panels into Yale’s Kroon Hall, adding a modern, eco-friendly touch to the university’s familiar gothic look.
