Over the last several years, architects realized the impact of rapid population growth and global warming. As the impact of global climate change escalates, forward-thinking architects would like to find a way to deal with those problems. Architects reckon sustainable design could achieve the goal and bring fresh air into the industry.

Now “Sustainability” has gone mainstream, and the interest in sustainable design has grown exponentially among design professionals and architects. At the same time, More and more green buildings appear in our city and citizens are benefiting from the sustainable design.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) have selected the top ten sustainable architecture and ecological design projects for 2016.

Let’s take a look which project won the honor.

1.Biosciences Research Building (Galway, Ireland)


2. Center for Sustainable Landscapes (Pittsburgh, Pa.)


3. Exploratorium at Pier 15 (San Francisco, Calif.)

Green architecture denotes economical, energy-saving, sustainable development, environmentally-friendly, and explores the relationship between architecture and ecology. Those projects successfully reduce the negative environmental impact of the buildings by increasing efficiency and moderation in the utilization of building materials, energy and development space. Particular attention is given to aspects of sustainability that will help us to better live in the earth.

AIMIR CG would like to cooperate with architects to heal Mother Earth by 3D and to create a better future for our children. If you have any good idea about cooperation, please leave a message below or contact us by e-mail: info@aimircg.com
