MoSS

The Museum of Science and Sustainability is a non-profit association that researches and interprets matters of science and sustainable living to educate the general public by using displays and experiments for the purpose of generating interest and independent thinking within these fields, and to provide a facility for other researchers and educators to explain their findings.This project is in the fundraising stage, and is currently on the boards. It is approximately 20,000 s.f., and is currently targeting Pinal County, Arizona for its final location. The Board has infused the current design with a green roof, natural building materials, a host of planned alternative energy strategies, and (though not currently shown in the renderings) an extensive amount of solar panels leading from the parking area to the entry. The solar panels have already been kindly donated, and will help greatly in the facility’s  goal of being  “100% off-grid.”  The desire is to be the premier example of sustainable building design in the country.
