Ever thought of building a home embedded into a rocky mountainside? That's just one house that made the cut in the American Institute of Architects' 2012 awards for homebuilding excellence. From pads with glass roofs to environmentally friendly low-income housing, the AIA honored this year's most innovative projects around the country in four categories: one- and two-family custom residences; one- and two-family production homes; multifamily housing; and specialized housing. We promise you'll want to move in to every home.
