Pittsburgh, PA, my hometown, has had an incredible attraction, the Phipps Conservatory since 1893.  One of the most beautiful conservatories, Phipps has always been on the leading edge of green technology.  Their Welcome Center was the first USGBC LEED Silver project in the world.  In 2012 Phipps is going to take another giant step and become the world’s first living building!

Phipps Conservatory is making great strides in the energy efficiency and sustainability fields through the construction of a new Center for Sustainable Landscapes. Thanks Gail, for bringing this new project to my attention.  I hope to be able to visit the new center in Spring, 2012 when it opens.

Take ten minutes to view the article on the new center and watch the amazing video…..
