Need art and design help with an ecologically sound building/contemporary with historic lineage

ECOLOGICALLY SOUND BUILDING / CONTEMPORARY with HISTORIC LINEAGE 

DISCOURSE:

Buildings, structures are what it is all about. There are foreground buildings, and background buildings. Many “environmentally” sensitive buildings go unnoticed due to their “low profile”; and yet deserve to be recognized and set foreword as an example of good architecture. Your Mission is to find such a building and bring it foreword. This will be in the form of a Power Point Presentation. You are to select a building that has relied on natural features, elements to achieve the “comfort” zone. You will reference a minimum of three historic sources. Minimum is equal to a “C”. 

For example, the entrance to an Eskimo’s igloo may be considered as a forerunner of today’s vestibule entrance. Your report would illustrate just how the igloo entrance functioned, and how it had been adapted to the particular building you chose to present. 

OBJECTIVE: 

The objective is to understand  those structures, which incorporate “old” technology to achieve environmental sustainability. Think about “natural systems. 

FORMAT:

POWER POINT20 MB MAXIMUM SIZE!

APPROXIMATELY 5 – 10 MINUTES DURATION: 

REQUIRED:

1.) Photo and or sketch of site and structure. (NORTH)

2.) Energy flow (Light, heat & air circulation)

2.) Explanation of any conflicting issues the building addresses without major compromise.

3.) Illustrate the impact on the environment on FORM.

NOTE:

I am not interested in a rehash of a magazine article. I am not interested in looking at photographs from someone other than you the author. I am not interested in viewing anything other than your work, your photographs, your drawings / sketches and the like which explain just how the building works.

NOTE:

The slides with speaker notes and especoially the drawings and sketches part.
