The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has released its 2007 list of Top 10 Green Building Awards. AIA began doing this about 11 years ago, and received the most entries this past year, totaling about 90+ submissions versus 40-50 per year in the past. The criteria for choosing the greenest building included water conservation, energy efficiency, sustainable building design, and many others. It’s great to see that there LEED as well as non-LEED certified buildings included.

Winning buildings spanned the entire country from California (predictably) and Oregon to Texas, Hawaii, Washington, DC, and New Jersey. The buildings also ran the gamut and included a school, a library, a courthouse, a water treatment plant, and even a private residence.
