Neat article on Treehugger showing several wicked-cool examples of buildings that keep cool using stored water, overlay walls and other techniques that used to be common, but have been largely abandoned as air conditioning became more available. These buildings return to their cultural roots while bringing 21st-century green technology into the equation.

I’m impressed—how about you?
