location California, Los Angeles
function gas station
contributed by rtaube

Critics of this gas station usually point out the huge irony in having an environmentally sustainable building sell gasoline. Others find it a step in the right direction, and considering the car culture in Los Angeles, as well as the progressive nature of California in general, it is a perfect fit. Architecturally, it is quite appealing visually and offers a public lesson in sustainable design as well. All of the faceted stainless steel panels are recycled, and the ground is composed of crushed glass. The roof of the low building is planted with drought resistant plants native to the area. It can also produce enough electricity from its solar panels to power three homes.
