Please join us to learn more about a case study of the Green Apple Classrooms installation at Terra Linda Middle School in the Bay Area. Learn about the design, construction and performance of these buildings.
There are over 100,000 portables in CA, and they are exposed to the elements on the top, bottom and all 4 sides. Often, they are crammed together so that the only possible lighting can come from either the front or the back. Skylights are seldom used because they have module lines running through their centers making skylight placement difficult. In short these are typically some of the most unpleasant buildings around.
Green Apple is an attempt to offer a friendlier alternative. Although they are nominally more expensive, they present an affordable substitute. Natural ventilation and lighting were high priorities in the design of these buildings. Built with the moderate CA climate in mind, they greatly reduce the power consumption of a standard portable.
About the Speaker
Paul Byrne, LEED AP, received his Bachelor's in Architecture at Cornell and his Master's in Design Studies at Harvard. He is primarily an environmentalist, believing we are stewards of the planet and responsible for maintaining and sometimes repairing ecology and the environment. "By integrating the natural environment into all facets of design, we're often able to minimize and at times reverse the toll we take on the planet. There can be no greater goal."
