After the big bash we threw last year, you may not believe this, but I just remembered that today is the third blog birthday for Jetson Green! I can't believe I forgot all about it. But hey, here's the thing: I really appreciate that you keep coming back to this little site. I really do. With all the great curators of fine green content out there, whether Inhabitat, Moco Loco, Materialicious, Contemporist, Metro Hippie, Dwell, Re-Nest, Treehugger, Low Impact Living, or otherwise, I'm glad you've spent some time here, too.
Update 9/22/09: Largest Green Wall in North America is Complete!
In a recent press release, PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC) announced plans to install a 2,380 square-foot, soil-based living wall on the southerly exterior of the company's Pittsburgh headquarters building, One PNC Plaza. The living wall, pending municipal approval and installation in September 2009, will be the largest green living wall in North America. Produced by Green Living Technologies and designed by Mingo Design, a careful arrangement of locally-sourced plants will brand the building with PNC's logo.
In April 2009, this bold vacation cabin received a 2009 Residential Architect Design Award in the custom home under 3,500 square feet category. The NY Times may have noticed, because Kate Murphy also published a feature article about the home last week. Referred to as Camp Cinco, this low-tech retreat was designed by Mark T. Wellen of Rhotenberry Wellen Architects for owner Roger Black and constructed by placing five shipping containers on hand-dug piers. The design is simple and striking.
