    In the spring of 2000, The Architectural League of New York launched an exhibition, "Ten Shades of Green," with Peter Buchanan as curator. Its purpose was to showcase examples of sustainable buildings that demonstrate some or all of ten aspects of green design including low energy/ high performance, renewable sources, recycling, embodied energy, long life, connection to urban context, and occupant health and happiness.

    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.

    While architects in the Northern Hemisphere have been appropriately fixated on manipulating southern orientations of buildings in pursuit of climate-responsive architecture, those "Down Under" have been giving the same attention to north-facing facades.

    In the new Business School for Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in New Zealand, the architecture firm JASMAX has designed a northwest facade that puts on a visual show in response to the daily sun path.
