A Building that Expresses Itself

A tour of the largest Net Zero building in the US Recently I joined the GCTC Smart Building Action Council on their guided tour of the Unisphere building in Silver Spring, MD. Beyond the breathtaking architecture and design, the building is in a familiar urban area so it proved what buildings can do in already established communities. In fact, Aaron and I touched on this [...]

Will dreams of sustainable buildings ever come true?

Dreams are challenging. They require ambition, patience, motivation… and sometimes, even acceptance of defeat. Thankfully, this isn’t an article about that! Instead, when it comes to sustainable buildings, we’re in the former stage of being patient with ever-growing motivation.
