Sustainable Connections: A Comprehensive Design of a Energy-Efficient Convention Center
MetadataShow full item record
Sustainable Connections: A Comprehensive Design of a Energy-Efficient Convention Center is a design thesis focused on the issue how can adaptive sustainable methods and technologies be applied to a convention center to design a energy-efficient structure? The design is of a convention center located in Shakopee Minnesota just off of the Minnesota River on the existing site of Huber Park. Creating a energy-efficient structure with new technologies will help build a connection to the environment, site and city through sustainable measures, to lessen the impact architecture has on the natural world. Architecture has a responsibility to protect, serve and improve society with sustainable design. With proper design strategies, technologies, and materials, large facilities such as convention centers can be created as energy-efficient structures serving to improve the environment and local community.
