The top 10 in Green Architecture for 2015
It's fun to see such a mix in this category, and there are some that probably shouldn't even be here; #10 should probably be in prefab and #1 in tiny houses. But It doesn't matter, they cover such a range of types and what a geographic range, coming from Canada, the USA, Indonesia, Australia and Switzerland.
Everything is upside down in Australia; what we call carbon negative or net zero, they call carbon positive. I think they are probably right, it sounds better. This probably should have been in our earlier The top 10 shipping container, prefab and modular homes of 2015 but was put in the Green Architecture category so here it is. More in TreeHugger

Bamboo has the compressive strength of concrete, the same strength-to-weight ratio of steel, and can regenerate itself in just a few short years. It's also flexible, beautiful, and resilient, and serves as an effective carbon sequestration channel. We should use more of it. More in TreeHuggerMore in TreeHugger CC BY 2.0

This is lovely, and the most popular green architecture post of the year, four small cabins, along with a common kitchen and dining space, and a guesthouse. Nicely done.
