Green Fund Projects

Shades of Green


The Shades of Green project is an ecological retrofit of Addams Hall. Proposed retrofits focus on energy and water conservation in the most heavily used areas of the building – restrooms and architecture studios. Students will film a documentary during the installation of these retrofits, which will be incorporated into an educational exhibit at Addams.
