"The Edge of the Kurkar cliff"
Environmental Development Plan for the Porter School of Environmental Studies and Science Promenade
The Porter School is located on the Science Promenade axis along the cliff overlooking the Ayalon Highway. The proximity of the promenade to the school was an inspiration to integrated installations that would reflect the ecological approach, the technological innovations and the energetic means which are available to the planners – all in accordance with the American Green Building certification (LEED). In this framework, the entry plaza will demonstrate greywater purification and the collection of rainwater for irrigation purposes, and the roof of the building, used for the air conditioning systems, will be utilized for experimentation and study of the value of vegetation as a factor in improving thermal comfort.
