AIA Releases Top Ten Green Buildings of 2014

Solar roof panels and low-flow toilets are so last season.  Now there’s more graywater recycling, net-zero or net-positive energy systems, ground source heat pump systems, and variable-refrigerant flow heating and cooling systems.  These features are featured in the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Committee on the Environment’s annual Top Ten Awards.

The awards celebrate projects that are innovative and integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment.  This year’s winners range from renovated historic buildings to educational facilities and even includes a very cool “sustainability treehouse” in West Virginia (here’s the photo).
