Assigned: Feb. 19, 2019
Due: April 23, 2019

Topic: Choose a "green" building* that has already been constructed. Describe its sustainable features in the following areas: location and site, water and waste, energy, atmosphere, materials, indoor environmental quality, and any other "green" categories that apply. Comment on whether the building is successful as green architecture, based on (1) your own definition of "success," and (2) what "success" means within other contexts (e.g., the LEED rating system, legal codes and standards, critiques of LEED, etc.).
