We return from a holiday break to talk about the USGBC and the chemical industry reaching a compromise, a development in plastic recycling, and the 2016 AIA Honor Awards.
Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, Seattle, is one of the projects from AIA 2016 Architecture Firm Award winner LMN Architects, also in Seattle.
Gary L. Parr is editorial director of Commercial Architecture magazine, and Paul Nutcher is president of Green Apple Group.
