The New Versailles?

Some new sustainability architecture seems to me to be bringing us closer to the Gardens of Versailles than sustainability. A short article in the NYT about a federal building in Portland, Oregon lacks enough information, it but did make me question the efficacy and efficiency of such designs. Maybe they should use Kudzu to climb its 200 foot facade.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
