Where: The Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place

Interest greenhouse technologies as a means of food production has grown significantly over the past few years, particularly as relates to urban agriculture. But what are the core technologies required to create an appropriate building enclosure in sustainable greenhouse design, and how can building science principles enable effective sustainable strategies?

Architect Michael McDonough has been working under a grant from NYSERDA to research, develop, and commercialize new greenhouse types for a variety of sites and climates. Project goals include the facilitation of local and hyper-local agriculture with an emphasis on job creation and sustainability in the context of net-zero energy design. McDonough will discuss his ongoing work in this area as a means to understanding performance goals.

Topics will include energy conservation, integrated building systems, and materials selection in net-zero energy greenhouse design in net-zero energy greenhouse design, as well as local food economics, crop selection, and processing in greenhouses as they relate to the building enclosure.

Organized by: AIANY Building Enclosure Council

Price: Free for AIA members; $10 for non-members
