Whether it is the Earth's environment or the living environment, building a LEED certified residence hall can be a great benefit to the New School Student Housing Services. The Student Housing Services has given me the opportunity to live and work along side the ultimate users of my subject, and a vast knowledge of how a residence hall is built.
My proposal for building a LEED certified residence hall is to aim for a triple bottom line of positive results in Efficiency, Environment and Equity while having the benefits of creating an Educational living experience. My project includes a workbook and interactive website which makes provides informative resources on how to achieve triple bottom line solutions to current problems at the New School residence halls. This project can serve as a bridge builder between my constituents, keeping in mind that a building process should have a holistic research and design process.
