    SUSTAINABILITY NORTHEAST

    "Green" Building design, as it becomes increasingly adopted by U.S. architects, is about more than conserving energy and natural resources. In green building, design criteria broaden to include fostering a sense of community, maintaining healthy environments, and preserving historic properties. These were some of the themes of the 2003 awards program of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA), which recently made awards to workplaces, schools, and residential projects. — Published 2003.0521

    BUILDINGS FOR EARTH DAY

    As architects become more aware of their role in protecting the natural environment, they begin to view "sustainable design" more broadly. In addition to reducing consumption of fossil fuels, successful "green" architecture also improves comfort for building occupants, protects and repairs its immediate surroundings, and makes a positive contribution to the community. — Published 2003.0430

    VILLA MODA'S INTERNATIONAL CHIC

    Surrounded by shipwrecks from the Persian Gulf War of the early 1990s, an unused dockland area on the outskirts of Kuwait City is an unlikely setting for one of the Middle East's most luxurious fashion stores. But adjacent to industrial shipping containers is a place where Kuwait's wealthy come to buy international chic. — Published 2003.0423

    GREEN ROOF RETROFIT

    The 1925 art deco-style Montgomery Ward Catalog Building in Baltimore, Maryland has just undergone a rehabilitation. The adaptive reuse project by DMJMH+N, an architecture/ engineering firm in Washington D.C., restored the facade of the landmark building and installed a 30,000-square foot (2800-square-meter) "green" roof. — Published 2003.0409

    POST-INDUSTRIAL AFFORDABILITY

    It is often tempting for architects and builders, when designing low-income housing, to look for any possible way to reduce the costs of initial construction. But if cheap materials lead to higher maintenance or utility bills in the long run, such economies may prove short-lived. A different approach is based on the idea that affordable housing can be not only attractive but durable and environmentally sustainable as well. — Published 2003.0212

    SANTA MONICA ELECTRIC

    In light of rising energy costs and potentially disastrous environmental policies, timing couldn't be better for the opening of Colorado Court, one of the first 100-percent energy-neutral housing developments in the United States. Located on a busy, urban street corner in Santa Monica, California, the award-winning five-story, "green" building is designed not only to reduce energy consumption but to return unused power back to the city's electrical grid. — Published 2003.0212

    GREEN BUILDERS CONVENE

    With sustainable design commanding an ever-greater presence in mainstream architecture, timing could not have been better for the inaugural Green Building International Conference and Expo of the U.S. Green Building Council.

    Held in Austin, Texas in November, 2002, the conference brought together over 2,000 architects, builders, scientists, ecologists, and other sustainability-minded professionals. Featuring approximately 100 different seminars over three days, the conference delivered expertise and experience from a wide variety of persons and places. — Published 2002.1218

    NEIGHBORHOOD SUSTAINABILITY

    The image of sustainable architecture has tended to be of vernacular buildings in a rural Arcadia. Cities after all are noisy, dirty, congested, resource hungry, and polluting. — Published 2002.1211

    URBANE WATERFRONT

    Two expansive dockland peninsulas on Amsterdam's eastern waterfront have been transformed into landmark residential neighborhoods. Without compromising the traditions and character of the Dutch city, the striking Borneo Sporenburg housing project emphasizes the importance of open space within a high-density environment. The project, its master planner Adriaan Geuze, and his firm, West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture of Rotterdam, have been awarded the seventh Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design by Harvard Design School, where the project is on exhibit. — Published 2002.1120

    BUILDING WITH PAPERCRETE

    There has been a explosion of interest recently in the development of sustainable building materials, from straw bale to cob. A relative newcomer to the green materials scene is papercrete. This unlikely marriage of repulped paper and portland cement has produced a material with some intriguing characteristics. — Published 2002.1113
