Greenhouse Presentation at Critical MASS Conference
April 26, 2022
For this semester, a group of students, led by Stefan Al and Kay Edge, were tasked with designing and fabricating full-scale mock-ups of a Greenhouse that is approximately 16' x 64'. Susan Liu and Ally Hutchison were invited to present the studio's work at UNC's Critical MASS Conference.
The Greenhouse is located in a vast natural landscape in the mountains of Blacksburg, VA. The program of the structure includes car storage for one vehicle, a maker's space, and exhibition space.
The purpose of this Greenhouse is to showcase a multitude of innovative materials and building techniques including polycarbonate, wood fabric, ETFE & smart louvers, printed clay, a green roof, and solar panels.
