The iCon Innovation Center, designed by Consarc Architects, demonstrates the possibilities for designers to create building and homes that minimize our environmental impact, while not sacrificing any of the form. The conference center and office building is built primarily from wood beams arranged vertically on the exterior.

With the eco movement becoming of greater and greater cultural importance, the iCon Innovation Center is really setting the standard in terms of what to expect from sustainable design. At the same time, its innovation will also help fuel a new batch of designers who will be eager to surpass it.

The building itself as an object is stunning. The overall outlook of this design will surely encourage other architects and designers to create pieces that are equally eco-friendly and aesthetically unique.
