Jonas Risen is on a roll over at Greenline. I'm biased, because he's a friend, and the blog is run out of our office, Ziger/Snead, but I think it's a rare thing to find writing about energy, materials, and building systems that's this sharp, diverse, consistent and critical.
For an intro, try this piece on Greenwashing and Photoshop in Architectural product ads. Then check this longform case study on the National Aquatic Center in Beijing, a comprehensive writeup that goes way beyond the technical, into fundamental questions about the nature of optimization and integration in a total system.
