    DESIGNING THE NEIGHBORHOOD RETAIL CENTER

    Often, adaptive reuse is not as sexy as designing a high-tech green building from scratch, with its full complement of the latest gizmos. But reconceptualizing a building that already exists is often the most sustainable choice, because such structures contain embodied energy — the energy that was invested in their original design and construction.   (Published 2012.0418)
