Most employed Americans spend more of their waking hours at work than at home. So it makes sense to make the work place make them feel at home in a environmentally friendly place of work. Architects can design a work place, a pleasant one by letting in more light and landscape designers can add to the feel good spaces in the building where one can take a break under the clear blue summer skies and sit under an umbrella surrounded by exotic flowering plants. The newest of the buildings in Louisville referred to as the NUCLEUS Innovation Office park of the University of Louisville Foundation, caught the attention of the US Green Building Council and its CEO and Founding Chair Rick Fedrizzi awarded the LEED Silver certification plaque to President James Ramsey of University of Louisville, Louisville, KY (Shown on the right side of the image facing the camera). The terrace garden (the left side of the image above) was established by the local botanical garden (Bernheim Arboretem in Louisville) volunteers and the setting nestled in the down town Louisville area gives a pleasing environment in which to relax during breaks under the clear blue skies in a home away from home.
