    Los Angeles High School Clad With 650 Solar Panels
    03/08/13 - Designed by Brooks+Scarpa Architects, the Green Dot Animo High School in South Los Angeles features a whopping 650 solar panels on its south-facing façade. The new public high school gets 75% of its energy from solar power and is expected to offset up to 3 million pounds of carbon emissions over its lifetime. It also takes advantage of a number of passive green building strategies to help achieve optimal levels of natural lighting and ventilation.

    The new school uses similar passive sustainable techniques as schools designed by New Orleans architects Curtis and Davis in the 1950s, which were adapted to local climates to provide optimal learning condition for students.  read more>>>
