I like the idea of this, but it would probably rot here in the Northwest.

France is an extremely inovative country. I have a book from there about green buildings. It represents all regions of the country. Some of the building are schools or offices. Some are apartment buildings and others are houses. Besides photos there are even techy drawings about the energy systems. It's pretty cool.
