2017 Austin Green Awards Recognizes
Four Aspirational Projects
The Austin Green Awards is Austin’s first recognition program to specifically highlight outstanding accomplishments in the broad arena of sustainable design and innovation, recognizing forward facing design strategies that respond to rapidly evolving environmental, social, and health imperatives.
The 2017 Austin Green Awards were announced at the second annual Austin Green Awards Celebration on October 25th, 2017. Kurt Stogdill, representing Headline Sponsor Austin Energy Green Building, acknowledged Austin's legacy of green building leadership while Michelle Addington, Dean of the UT School of Architecture, provided opening remarks stating, "We no longer want any of our students to think that sustainability is a topic they can choose to study but rather that it is the very foundation upon which architecture must build."
