Each year the American Institute of Architects’ Committee on the Environment (COTE) recognizes ten projects that use an integrative approach to provide built solutions that protect and enhance the environment. COTE examines projects based on their design and innovation, integration with their community, land use and effect on site ecology, bioclimatic design, energy and water use, approach to light and air, materials and construction, long-life considerations, and feedback loops. This year Phipps Conservatory’s Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) was selected to receive this prestigious award.
