Inhabitat Blog Highlights Student Proposals for Pratt Green Roof
Inhabitat blog recently highlighted student design proposals for a green roof on Pratt's Brooklyn Campus. The students presented their proposals as part of Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development's (PSPD) Green Infrastructure Design Build summer course. The student-designed roof will be located on North Hall, a building that houses the campus cafeteria as well as classrooms, and will be planted with native species and monitored to measure storm water management and energy efficient benefits. The roof will be realized through a $475,167 grant received by Pratt from the Department of Environmental Protection Green Infrastructure Grant Program. The post was authored by current PSPD student Leonel Ponce.
