Is it me?

...or are green projects tending towards some amorphous design ideal?

Not to pick on Kubalo Washatko, or anything - this is truly a beautiful project, expertly done.  There are many, many positives about its design, and that's BEFORE you say "LEED Platinum."

But I look at this year's AIA / COTE Top Ten Awards (look here), and...I'm underwhelmed by the variation of design approaches.  There's definitely a "look" - a beautiful, friendly look, but a look nonetheless.  Is that a good thing?  I'm not so sure.  I'd like to see a bit more disparity within the green approach.
