'Contemporary Green Buildings' By Taschen Are Gorgeous (PHOTOS)

In case you missed the memo, climate change is happening. Luckily those of us who wish to wise up and cut down on our energy consumption can do so in style. We're excited about Taschen's "100 Contemporary Green Buildings," a survey of eco-friendly architecture at the cutting edge of design and environmental awareness.

Gathered from around the globe, the following selection of green buildings range from permanent camping grounds to schools. Architectural giants such as Frank Gehry as well as lesser-known architectural forces hailing from all over the globe are channeling the spirit of Mother Nature in their inventive architectural forms.

Check out the slideshow below and prepare to see green.
