Since buildings place a significant strain on the nation’s power grid, the demand for more zero-energy buildings continues to grow. More construction firms are focusing on building structures that are resilient and also able to generate much of their own power through renewable sources like solar panels, efficient heat pumps, radiant cooling systems, and techniques that improve building envelopes.

Green Building Projects

There have been several notable projects in this space recently including a new Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building on the campus of Arizona State University. The project was designed by Studio Ma based out of Phoenix, AZ, and features an air-purifying biome in addition to other systems that can capture and convert carbon, recycle water and use minimal energy.
