INSTRUCTOR: BETSY JOHNSON

This is an architecture project focusing on green house design. We were required to design a complex including a greenhouse, a classroom and some outdoor space.  

My design focus on sustainability. To encourage a sustainable lifestyle, I made the openings of the green house mostly follow the solar path and connect the pitched roof, spiral ramps and central green area to an efficient drainage system. As well, Biophilia is a concern I included in the design. The branches pattern on the greenhouse and the green area in the center give the users a taste of nature.

The general design idea was proposed at the midterm and further developed at the final for class ENVD 2120.The project was finished by using Rhino, Photoshop and Illustrator.
