    AIA TOP TEN GREEN BUILDINGS 2004

    In recognition of Earth Day 2004, The American Institute of Architects and its Committee on the Environment selected ten exemplary "green" buildings that — through their construction and operation — minimize damage to the environment. Together, they showcase environmentally responsible design through brownfield redevelopment, alternative heating and cooling systems, and/or creative use of daylighting. — Published 2004.0602

    GREEN SCHOOL GATHERS FOR TAKEOFF

    When architects speak of "green" buildings these days, they seldom mean it literally. But for the elementary/ middle school in Lake Zurich, Illinois, Legat Architects, Inc. have justified both environmental and chromatic interpretations of the word. They designed the new school for sustainability and gave it a distinctive copper entrance that the students have dubbed "the green spaceship." Says their principal: "They keep waiting for it to blast off!" — Published 2004.0526

    GOING GREEN IN NEW ENGLAND

    It's no longer enough to be energy conserving. To be truly "green," a building should integrate efficiency and form, use renewable energy systems, and demonstrate sensitivity to its natural surroundings and to the health of its occupants. It should also rely on materials, construction methods, and operational procedures that cause minimal disturbance to the environment. — Published 2004.0428

    POSTCARD FROM TURKESTAN

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    While in Kazakstan on my round-the-world bicycle tour, I visited the Hodja Ahmed Yasavi Mausoleum, one of the country's architectural gems. Surrounded by desert and low, rough, mud-brick buildings, the green tiled dome shimmers above the city of Turkestan. — Published 2004.0107

    SIOUX CITY ORPHEUM RESTORATION

    The Orpheum Theatre in Sioux City, Iowa was once a grand vaudeville and movie palace. Designed by the famous Chicago architects Rapp and Rapp, it opened in 1927 and boasted spectacular chandeliers, a gold leaf covered dome, and the grandest of lobbies.

    Over the decades, the theater suffered numerous insensitive remodels but has recently returned spectacularly to life thanks to a dedicated team of restoration expert and craftspeople. — Published 2003.1203

    UK DEVELOPS ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRESS

    When the United Kingdom ratified the Kyoto Protocol on climate change, it was taking a lead from continental Europe. This ratification demonstrated a high level of government awareness of environmental issues that is more akin to that of Britain's nearest neighbors than to that of its wartime ally, the United States. — Published 2003.1015

    NATURALLY COOL CONVENTION CENTER

    Echoing the shape of bridges arcing over the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is the new David L. Lawrence Convention Center. A sail-like roof is suspended from steel cables over the four-story riverfront building.

    The dramatic form designed by architect Rafael Viñoly Architects is more than visually striking, however. The sweeping roof channnels river breezes and creates a degree of natural ventilation that is extraordinary for a building of this type and size. — Published 2003.1008

    LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT TOOLS

    One of the most difficult problems for architects interested in sustainable design is knowing which materials are "green." Is the material recycled? Local? Renewable? Is it low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs)? What if you have to choose between these attributes? Are there other factors to be considered? And what about marketing claims? Is a material really "green" just because the manufacturer says it is? The choices can be bewildering. — Published 2003.0716

    GREENING ROOFTOPS

    Green roofs — topped with soil and living plants — have well known benefits to the buildings beneath them. They provide thermal and sound insulation and can prolong roof life. They also offer healthful benefits to their urban surroundings.

    So says Steven Peck, executive director of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities. Other potential benefits of so-called "naturalized" rooftops include stormwater management, urban food production, air pollution reduction, and urban heat island temperature modification. — Published 2003.0625

    LEED PLATINUM AT UCSB

    It is fitting that one of the first buildings to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council for achieving the "platinum" LEED status is a school dedicated to researching environmental issues, training research scientists and professionals, and identifying and solving environmental problems. — Published 2003.0611
