Top Green Picks from "How Green Are You?"

100khouse Project

There’s some stunning green work being featured on Dwell right now as a result of the "How Green Are You?" competition.  The basic idea of the competition, co-sponsored by Dwell and the AIA, is to find inspiring entries assessed on their sustainability, functionality, originality, cost effectiveness, and design.  Entrants can provide up to four images and a simple, 250-word description of the project — about all you need to find some incredible designs.  I understand 100kHouse (pictured above) just entered their project, but I didn’t see it on Dwell yet.  Below are a few of my favorite entries so far. 







We featured Boxhouse previously — it’s a cool green renovation project.  There’s certainly no shortage of talent, that’s for sure.  Anyone have a favorite green project?

    Thanks for the blog love Preston. Hopefully our submission goes through as it was pretty last minute. Either way the projects you’ve selected are good company to be in.

      Definitely would be good to see you guys take some cash in the contest, but that’s okay if you don’t. I’m pumped to see the final product on the $100k house, seriously!

    We entered our house too, as “In-Town Building” – but the 100k House will be tough competition! 😉 It’s really inspiring to see such a variety of projects from all over the country. Good luck, Chad!
