WMIG_webgraphic_0Among the many criteria you might select to benchmark your projects, one of the most helpful is an assessment of the qualities of award winning projects. To help you keep your eye on the prize, a new pocket-sized publication, available from NEEA’s BetterBricks, and a touring exhibition traversing the Northwest provide opportunities to see how your work matches up with the 2010 AIA Seattle Committee on the Environment (COTE) What Makes it Green? award winners. These projects exhibit the best in innovative, environmentally responsible design in the Pacific Northwest.

These projects were selected by a four member jury consisting of Bob Berkebile FAIA, founding principal, BNIM Architects; Don Horn AIA, Assistant Director, GSA Office of Federal High Performance Green Buildings, Claire Johnson, Associate Director, Atelier Ten, San Francisco, and Alex Steffen, Executive Editor, Worldchanging. Among the selected projects are King Street Station (Seattle) and Twelve | West (Portland), both by ZGF Architects; Vancouver Convention Centre West (Vancouver, BC), LMN Architects; Northwest Maritime Center (Port Townsend), The Miller Hull Partnership; and Common Ground (Lopez Island), Mithun.
