Space Sky Earth: Weather Learning Museum and Research Center
More InformationShow full item record
A rainstorm now and again can be a calming experience. With our climate changing and a focus on more sustainable built projects, we can only wonder if it is enough to help offset the carbon footprint that architects create. Through the creation of a research facility to monitor and observe natural phenomena, researchers and the public can learn and study the weather and climate that surround us in our everyday lives. The building itself will be used as a learning tool by integrating sustainable building practices mixed with interactive spaces to learn about green building. The three areas of focus at the facility are the earth, sky, and space. Qualitative, correlated, and case studies will be my primary forms of research. These will provide in-site as to how research is done and how to design for a sustainable building. Designing a multi-disciplinary building that strives for the best sustainable design all while showing the effects of climate change on our planet will be the goal of this project.
