This video shows some of the concepts that could be explored as part of our efforts to transform 4750 GreenRise into a sustainable building.

The ICA has been in discussion with designer Domenico D'Alessandro about the possibilities of the bioshaft. Domenico is considered to be a visionary thinker on environmental issues. Watch the video and let us know your thoughts!
