This was another volunteer project that I became a part of as a result of Eco Abet’s 2012 Winter Charrette. This project was in benefit to CultivateKC, a local non-profit that helps people learn how to grow, eat, harvest cook and sell healthy food in our city and neighborhoods. The day long charrette consisted of developing a schematic design and some rendered images that the organization could use to raise funding for their project. These are two of the images that were produced as a result of this design effort. Our team’s design focused on using an affordable and durable pre-manufactured green house and the head house that would draw energy from solar panels and will be built using straw bales as the thermal insulator. The parking area for the structure will be built using drivable grass pavers and to gather water on the site, two rain barrels would be installed. We will continue to keep you updated on the progress of this building as the design develops.
