Greening New and Old: Two Chicago Examples of Sustainable Design

This presentation explores two groundbreaking projects: The Yannell Net Zero Energy Residence and the Shaw Technology and Learning Center (STLC). The Yannell Residence is a newly constructed home producing more energy than it consumes, while STLC is the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the historic Sears power plant into a sustainable high school.
