LARAMIE, Wyo. — The University of Wyoming's new Visual Arts Building has received national recognition for its energy efficient engineering and design features.
The building won a Portland 2030 Challenge Design Award at the recent American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment Green Champions Summit.
Only three awards were given at the competition.
The winners were picked by Architecture 2030, which is a nonprofit organization that works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the building sector. The judges considered the carbon dioxide reductions and 2030 target compliance as well as the overall sustainable design objectives.
