One such project is the “Sustainability Treehouse” which gets its energy from solar and wind power! The Sustainability Treehouse won the 2013 Honors Award for Washington Architecture, received the highest level of recognition in 2013 for the Society of Environmental Graphic Design, and was a Top Ten award winner by the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment! 24 WSJ participants will get to visit it!
