Staff | September 28, 2010

At the American Institute of Architects Convention in Boston, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency unveiled the newest group of architecture projects to achieve "Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR," the government's mark of superior energy efficiency in building design. Forty-six new building designs from 19 states earned the distinction in 2008, more than a 40-percent increase from 2007. Five of these projects will take place in New England, four of which are future city of New Haven schools.
