We are thrilled to take Meagan Hodge’s final masters project in SCAD’s Design for Sustainability program from vision to reality with this educational greenhouse! Emergent Structures led the collaborative effort to build the greenhouse, which includes sustainable features like solar photovoltaic energy and rainwater catchment. It serves as the agricultural training center for Design for Ability, a non-profit created by Meagan that is dedicated to green jobs training for special needs teenagers in the Savannah area.
Check out this great video on the project by Kirutungo Productions:
The lead funder for the project is IKEA, with sponsorship also coming from DIRTT Environmental Solutions,Guerry Lumber, Gulfstream, DPR Hardin Construction, Savannah Technical College, Southern Pine Company,Whole Foods Markets, and Young Contracting.
