In honor of Earth Day, the AIA Committee on the Environment selects ten innovative projects to be recognized for setting the standard in design and sustainability. The winning designs can also receive the COTE Top Ten Plus designation, which highlights a project’s successful actual performance and post-occupancy lessons.  

The list of award winners includes a wide variety of projects, from a net zero carbon science and environmental center in California to a living laboratory in Texas. The full list of award winners and their projects can be found here.
