    Prototype Recovery

    by ArchitectureWeek

    In August 2006, Global Green USA announced the winner of the Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans. The project, by Andrew Kotchen, Matthew Berman, and their New York office workshop/apd will be built in the Holy Cross Neighborhood to set an example both for supportive community housing in the beleaguered city and for sustainability in residential design in general.

    In making the announcement, Global Green president Matt Petersen declared "These homes, once built, will help improve the lives of families by lowering energy costs and improving the health of the residents." He estimates that if 50,000 houses were built to these standards, residents would save $38 to 56 million per year in energy costs, and carbon and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by about 11 tons (10 metric tons) per household per year.   >>>
