Session 7B: Greening the Vertical Realm

31 October 2017
1:45 PM – 3:15 PM

The concepts of vertical greenery and its sustainable outcomes are no longer novel. New research on the subject has moved past basic questions of its application to more detailed analyses on gaps in prescriptive and performance requirements, movement towards “net-zero carbon” structures, and new benchmarking concepts, all of which will be discussed in detail.
