AIA/COTE (Committee for the Environment) awards honor the greenest American buildings that demonstrate " innovation in sustainable design that thoroughly integrates architecture, natural systems, and technology to protect and enhance the environment. Entries are judged on their design; innovation; community integration; land use; responses to light, air, energy, and water concerns and use; material use and construction; lifespan capabilities; and feedback loops."

They don't kid around here, doing serious analysis of each project, with far too much content for us to put into a slideshow, so each page links back to the AIA page for further information.
