Green & Mean: The Top Ten Energy-Efficient Green Projects

The American Insitute of Architects green building design winners.


| September/October 2001


This year, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) selected ten outstanding examples of green building efforts for national recognition. “The AIA/COTE Top Ten Awards program is designed to acknowledge exemplary green projects by U.S. architects that are both energy efficient and environmentally friendly,” explains COTE vice chairwoman Joyce Lee.

COTE collaborated with the U.S. Department of Energy this year and hopes to attract other agency and corporate support in the future.
