The EcoHouse Group, which consists of: Stephen (Bachelor of Fine Arts), Jason (Mechanical Engineering), Vincent (Mechanical Engineering) and Gabriel
(Mechanical Engineering), will be working on one of Green Corridors long term projects called “EcoHouse.”
“A demonstration project that examines and illustrates environmentally-responsible living. An existing house is being converted so that it utilizes innovative solutions for energy efficiency and environmentally-sustainable living.” -Green Corridor
One of our most promising projects for the house is the Window Farm initiative, a project that creates “suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield light-augmented window farms using low-impact or recycled local materials.” -Windowfarms.org
These planters were designed by Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley, an artist collective that have “set out to start a window farm craze in NYC. Britta and Rebecca will work with agricultural, architectural and other specialists to create high-profile prototype window farms and means for sharing design ideas to meet varying local situations around the city.”
Here’s a video on this exciting new project.
