    AIA TOP GREEN BUILDINGS 2010

    A boxy new house stands on stilts in the Katrina-ravaged Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.

The LEED Silver-certified building, designed by Cannon Design, features prefabricated pine panels spanning between hollow composite wood-steel arches to form a rhythmically pleated timber ceiling over the ice.
