I think it does. The problem with LEED is that a building can be certified anywhere. So a building in the middle of nowhere can be Gold LEED-certified but people need to travel far to get there. Context doesn’t matter. That is why LEED-ND (LEED for Neighborhood Development), is coming to the forefront. It looks beyond individual building to its relationship with its surroundings.
I do agree with greenjoy that location and the general context of a building should be considered in the LEED rating system. Also, the LEED rating system should be updated frequently to account for new technology as well as other considerations.
