Nathan Kipnis started his career as an architect when energy-conscious design was viewed as nothing more than a passing fad. However, he knew that the future needed people who understood that “green” features didn’t have to come at the expense of beautiful architecture. In this new Success Story video, Kipnis explains how he's made it his firm's mission to combine technical efficiency with a modern aesthetic, pioneering a movement toward stylish sustainability.


“The future of green architecture is interesting because even though people once thought of it as a voluntary thing, it’s become quite real,” says Kipnis, who founded Kipnis Architecture + Planning (KAP) in 1993 to inject sustainability into projects ranging from office buildings and residential homes to airport terminals and offshore wind farms.
