I attended a residential green building seminar last week and was pleased to see some thought provoking projects presented during the day.
One project in particular called Tiera caught my attention.
Teira is being designed by Rizzolo Brown + Nowak Architects in Ann Arbor and will be located in downtown Ann Arbor. The contemporary massing and detailing is contrasted by an 8-story wall of vegetation that hides the stair tower. What you can’t see from this image is garden and rain water capture system that has been integrated into the roof of the building.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2009.
