Green Learning Center

Cincinnati, OH

The Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati required a renovation of a building, re-designed to function as a Green Learning Station, housing their education programs. This building is a reclaimed gas station that has been transformed to demonstrate the best in Green Technologies including: daylighting, water efficient fixtures, natural ventilation, storm water management, renewable energy, and green roof technologies. The project is a showcase for green technologies that can be applied to urban neighborhoods, existing buildings and community gardens. Additionally, it is a test laboratory for green technologies including permeable pavements, remote sensor applications, and active storm water management and reuse technologies. The entire building is designed as an active participant in the learning including composting demonstration areas and roof vegetable gardens and prairies.
