Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture, The University of Arizona
The performative roles of a new Photovoltaic Green Roof justify the coupling of these two systems at the University of Arizona. Goals in diplomacy, research, ecology and decarbonization align in the embodiment of this synergistic case toward sustainability. Research efforts and preliminary findings are described in context with the built systems to highlight environmental performance integration while catering to challenges in social functions.
Advance registration is required for this event hosted on Zoom:
