California Academy of Sciences

The California Academy of Sciences is one civic organization that puts its money where its mouth is. This educational temple to the wonders of the natural world is the largest public LEED Platinum-rated building ever, and the greenest museum anywhere.

From famed architect Renzo Piano's undulating Living Roof to the energy-efficient ambient lighting and cooling system, the Academy leads by example in their commitment to tread lightly upon the Earth.

Go behind the scenes for an eye-opening look at how bright--and green--the future can be.
