LEED or Leadership in Energy and Envorinmental Design, is an internationally recognized mark of excellence in building and construction of sustainable structures. The VanDusen Botanical Garden Visitor Centre looks to exceed 'LEED Platinum' status, designed to reach the most stringent measurement of sustainability; the 'Living Building Challange." Inspired by the organic form and natural aesthetic of a native orchid, with undulating green roof 'petals' that float above rammed earth and concrete walls. Creating a harmonious balance between architecture and landscape, the Visitor Centre uses filtered rainwater  and treats 100% of blackwater in an on-site bioreator. Now that's being one with nature. Designed by Chicago based Perkins + Wills, the pictures will amaze.
