Accepting the AIA COTE’s Top Ten Green Projects Award for KAUST

Mary Ann Lazarus snapped this shot on her iPhone at the AIA’s National Convention in Miami last week. Pictured are Bill Odell (HOK St. Louis), Colin Rohlfing (HOK Chicago) and Wyatt Frantom (HOK Houston) who, on behalf of the hundreds of HOKers who worked on this amazing project, accepted the AIA Committee on the Environment’s “Top 10 Green Projects” award for the design of the LEED Platinum-certified King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. Here’s the KAUST case study on the AIA’s site.

    Is the translucent skin of the library created with natural stone? I’m curious- what company supplied the panels? I love the design, and my company does similar things, so this absolutely piqued my interest.
