The Shakopee Convention Center design is my Master’s thesis
project focusing on green design and sustainable technologies.
The question I explored was how can sustainable methods
and technologies be applied to a convention center to design
an energy-efficient structure that melds technology and nature
as one? The goals I set for this were for innovative
technologies to enhance the effectiveness of passive methods.
Some of the major elements include a river terrace that ends
over the Minnesota River and the green way that cuts through
the building and acts a purification of air and water.
