Student Design Commendation: BRICKWORKS GREEN
Locally sourced, energy-efficient, and renewable materials are designed to reduce the overall
carbon footprint of the building, both during the construction process and post-occupation.
Other features are natural ventilation using a stack effect through louvers at the top of
the marketplace; Earth tubes for passive heating and cooling; rain gardens for roof water
biofiltration; and rooftop organics.
Student Design Commendation: FARMULOUS
Referred to as an “urban agriculture education center,” the entry includes a wetland with timber
decking, an education hub telling the living building’s story, and a water and food closed-loop
recycle system. A supermarket, greenhouse, veggie farm, and restaurant are among the tenants.
