VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, BC

Designed by Perkins + Will, the Visitor Center achieves net-zero energy by using solar panels, a green roof, using on-site dry wood waste to heat water with a biomass boiler and conserving rainwater. the building is LEED certified and is part of the Living Building Challenge, which is the “most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment”.

I want to visit Vancouver ASAP.
