Looking back at the most popular posts on TreeHugger in the Design and Architecture category, one sees a rather odd mix, barely a normal bit of design and architecture in the bunch. In fact, there is only one real building in the lot. But they do reflect the eclecticism of both our writers and our readers.
Here are some of the most popular posts of the year, selected by a mix of page views and editing for eclecticism.
