Abstract: USGBC’s annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, which was held in San Francisco this November, there are some interesting things going on which should be not missed to look. Two dozens tours of impressive building representing the new era of green architecture and more recognizable interesting contents. The tour committee picked 12 half day tours on friday and saturday and 12 full day tours on saturday. The reason for this ridiculous line up and also the how they managed to pull this off is to show off the Bay Area and to show the new content of green building; educational, operational and more on. The tours were well organized enough for people to get a grasp on beautiful yet environmental friendly and future forward architecture which satisfied a lot of viewers of the conference.
