Green profile: William McDonough

Discover Magazine has an interesting profile on William McDonough, an architect whose focus is on sustainability and conservation without making a building look stark, weird, or simply non-functional. Don’t ask me why, but I have a soft spot for architecture and sustainability, so seeing the two of them together is always a treat for me. I am inspired by anyone who wants to change the world, but if I get to live in their creations, that’s even better!

For a west coast example, the California Academy of Science‘s new building opened recently, another success in aesthetic and “green” design.
