Housing That's Green And Affordable

AIA "Show You're Green" Award Honors Innovators in Affordable Green Housing

The American Institute of Architects announced the winners of the first "Show You're Green" Award at their national conference July 9th. Eight projects were selected from around the country based on their attractiveness, affordability and sustainable design.

Gita Dev, FAIA, "Show You're Green" awards jury chair said, "This award program aims to showcase the wide range of ways that architects have included green elements in aesthetically excellent, affordable designs. Such principles can be easily incorporated by developers to green their housing projects and will have a lasting, positive impact on the surrounding community."
