Take a look at some new products that could be just right for your next
Green Design Awards
Green is the new black—at least when it comes to architecture. Here’s
a look at a project that’s sustainably in style.
Path to Green
LEED is no longer the only way for a building to go green; the International
Green Construction Code has construction professionals across the board
wondering (or hoping) whether “green” will someday be a mandatory requirement.
Take a look and see what some exhibitors are featuring in San Francisco
during Greenbuild 2012.
Replacing 45,000 white, Carrara marble panels with 5,000 glass lites isn’t
an everyday feat. Tie in the fact that the glass also needed to offer
the same aesthetic as the marble and things get even more complex. Can
it be done? With the right team on board it can indeed.
While glass often is praised for its energy-efficiency features, it can
also add a decorative aesthetic, style, purpose and meaning to many different
types of projects.
