ICA USA‘s Greenrise Historic Restoration project is featured in the January-February 2018 issue of Retrofit Magazine in conjunction with a new building owned by the American Geophysical Union in Washington DC. The article is entitled for “aiming for zero” and it appears on pages 64-68 (pdf).
The concept of net-zero energy building is ambitious. It also represents the very essence of sustainability. To truly live sustainably is to operate within the parameters of a natural system, without taking anything from it or leaving anything harmful behind. Net-zero buildings seek to do just that.
