Aluminum has always offered unique advantages for designing the shape, appearance and finish of modern buildings. Today it offers an even more important advantage: sustainability. New aluminum components and designs optimize natural lighting and shade, enhance energy management, and support designs that make the most of the physical environment. And aluminum's unmatched recyclability gives architects a key tool to design with cradle-to-cradle lifecycles in mind.
When you combine Green building advantages with aluminum's well-known aesthetic and design benefits, it's little wonder that today's advanced LEED® certified Green Buildings start with Alcoa Aluminum.
