PHILADELPHIA, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new web article by Best Masters Degrees puts 50 of the world's most sustainable university buildings in the spotlight. "The 50 Most Impressive Environmentally Friendly University Buildings" in the article were hand-picked for their eco-friendly features including engineering, architecture, design and qualities of sustainability. Environmentally sound university buildings typically consume far less energy and afford better sanitary conditions than older buildings.
These facilities have earned considerable industry honors for excellence in architectural and green design. Awarding agencies include the AIA (American Institute of Architects), BPN Sustainability, and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC LEED).
All of the buildings exhibit characteristics of aesthetic appeal as well as sustainability. They range from a university science lab in Pittsburgh made of 94% recycled materials to a park-like, six-story, underground university building in Seoul, South Korea.
"These universities are showing themselves to be leaders when it comes to beauty and sustainability on campus," said editor Marianna Chara. "The value to students can be tremendous."
