    LEED GOLD ELDER LIVING

    As "green" principles begin to take hold in U.S. firms, those architects who have been following them the longest are demonstrating a refined and diverse understanding of what "sustainability" means to a building's occupants. For the NBBJ design team for the Washington State Veterans' Home, sustaining the elderly inhabitants' quality of life was a key component of the design intent. — Published 2006.0809

    EDGY IN LA

    In June 2006, downtown Los Angeles was overrun with architects in town for the National AIA Convention. When not exploring the burgeoning city center and notable regional architecture, these visitors were eagerly learning about the "next new thing" for the profession.

    This year's convention combined big names and varied themes to create a full agenda of educational seminars, architectural tours, trade exposition booths, and business meetings. The event drew a record 25,000 registrants to the Los Angeles Convention Center. — Published 2006.0719

    VINYL: ANY COLOR BUT GREEN

    In the debate over the "greenness" of building materials, vinyl has become a divisive topic. The U.S. Green Building Council conducted what it termed an exhaustive study of the environmental impact of vinyl and decided to drop recommendations to avoid the use of vinyl in its LEED certification program. As a result, the USGBC has found itself at odds with some environmental groups. — Published 2006.0621

    DOWN UNDER HOUSES

    Contemporary residences by Australian and New Zealand architects share several common themes, most notably a sense of environmental stewardship and a desire to blend with the surrounding landscape, whether it's a historic urban street or a protected coastline. These architects favor indoor/outdoor rooms and often zone houses into pavilions. "Green" features abound, including natural ventilation, use of natural materials, photovoltaic panels, and rainwater collection systems. And often, the location itself is spectacular and framed in views from the interior. Editor — Published 2006.0531

    TWO GREEN HOUSES

    Fifty-one-year-old Kengo Kuma, among the best-known Japanese architects of his generation, tends to use each of his residential commissions to explore a single building material. In a dense Tokyo neighborhood, for example, he designed the so-called Plastic House. — Published 2006.0517

    MIES ON LAKE SHORE DRIVE

    When German-born architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed the famous twin-tower Lake Shore Drive Apartments in Chicago, these modern icons, also known as the "Glass Houses," took their place in line along a lakefront history exhibit of the city's residential architecture.

    AIA HOUSING AWARDS 2006

    In the wake of a century in which in U.S. residential architecture suffered from suburban sprawl, wastefulness, the popularity of extravagant but barren "MacMansions," and indifference to history, urban context, and affordability, it is refreshing to see a collection of projects that offer positive object lessons for architects and homebuilders. — Published 2006.0503

    BOISE LEED-NC

    In a state better known for its green forests than its "green" building practices, a newly renovated warehouse sets a precedent for sustainability. Front 5 Building in downtown Boise, Idaho has just been received the state's first LEED-NC (New Construction and Major Renovations) certification for its energy- and resource-efficiency. — Published 2006.0412
