Museum Exhibit Provides Green Building Advice

Ethan Goffman profiles the "Green House" exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

"A new exhibit at Washington, D.C.'s National Building Museum puts green living in the spotlight, providing inspiration for those who dare to dream and a plethora of ways for the rest of us to counteract our wasteful habits.

"'The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design' aims to show visitors how thoughtful choices -- even small ones -- can help conserve resources, save money, and support healthier lifestyles. With displays that are complemented by lectures, trips to renovation and construction projects, family programs, and a comprehensive website, the exhibit offers something for everyone."

"Ultimately, says coordinating curator Reed Haslach, the exhibit's organizers hope to convince visitors of the benefits -- and ease -- of going green."
