Beautiful Green Architecture

I had the pleasure of touring the new Bullitt Center
tonight with other members of the IIDA. Kudos to
Robert Pena, an architecture professor at the UW
and consultant for the Integrated Design Lab, for
leading the group.
The Bullitt Center is the greenest commercial
building in the world. Hopefully it starts a trend.

Exterior Bullitt center
These exterior “blinds” open and close according
to the level of sunlight. When we arrived they were
closed; as the sun was setting a short time later
they automatically opened to allow more light
into the space.
