Poster boards of student project in sustainable design. The assignment was to design an unplugged office building for the former Voice of America site. This team created a trellis with deciduous vines and a green space in the reflective central courtyard. Both design elements reduce re-radiated heat from the south facing exposure of the space as well as shading for light allowed to penetrate the office space.
