RESET, through the 1% program at Public Architecture in San Francisco, has started design on a new 50,000 sf facility for Going EverGreen. The building program contains many classrooms and offices, large labs on the second floor (each devoted to a specific area of study), and a small general administration area. Current design features include a green roof, very large solar arrays, significant inclusion of sustainable building materials, and a courtyard type layout that reduces the need for internalized circulation and promotes engaging the exterior environment as a normal, everyday requirement of using the building.

From their materials: “The mission of the Alternate Energy Center is to promote the use of renewable energy by providing access to information on renewable energy to communities, businesses, and educational institutions, by spearheading the development and transfer of renewable energy technologies, and by creating interacting networks of educators and their students, alternative energy businesses, government, and community leaders.”
