2009 AIA COTE Top Ten Green Projects!

Jewish-Reconstructionist-Congregation

It's that time of year again — the AIA Committee on the Environment ("COTE") just published its annual list of Top Ten Green Projects.  There's some definite superstars in the group, and we've mentioned a few of them already, including the Chartwell School and Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation.  Perkins+Will has two projects in the group, but this just confirms what we already know: the firm is a leader in sustainable design.  Below, we've included direct links to AIA case studies for each project, as well as a link to the lead architect.

    I love the botanical gardens one. I have always wanted to have a house that is just barely visible through all of the vegetation that I have growing around it. A house in the middle of some woods.

    Definitely Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation. The building looks much better than other building.
