Entry Description

Green Square - reshaping the way people think about sustainability

Green Square was the number one tourist attraction in North Carolina in 2014. The Green Square Nature Research Center brings North Carolina's state environmental offices and Museum of Natural Sciences to the heart of the North Carolina’s capital city. The double platinum project integrates leading-edge sustainable technology and also teaches visitors about sustainability and conservation efforts. The building creates aesthetically distinct yet harmonious architectural vocabulary within a dense urban setting.
