via Grist
# 6 Philip Merrill Environmental Center, Annapolis, Md., U.S.
"The Chesapeake Bay Foundation may struggle with cleaning up that venerable body of water, but it's achieved smooth sailing in the green-construction department. Made of eco-materials including sustainably harvested wood and steel recycled from cars and guns, the foundation's Merrill Center sits on concrete piers to allow parking underneath and is cooled by bay breezes."
