It isn't easy being green (but everyone is doing it)
Recent stories on National Public Radio and in the Star Tribune highlight architecture's hottest trend: green buildings. A story by NPR's Kathleen Schalch includes information on the Washington Nationals new ballpark, a enviro-friendly place to play nine innings. Minnesota is also getting in on the act with greenish buildings by Minnesota Public Radio, University of Minnesota football stadium, Minnesota Department of Agriculture and others. The Strib story quotes Tom Hysell of Architectural Alliance as saying, "Someday all architects will be green architects." That day may not be too far off.
