Abstract

This urban, landscape and architectural project (Greening the Infrastructure of Benny Farm) proposes an unprecedented integration of buildings, infrastructure and community-driven housing development. This project guides the sustainable construction and renovation of 187 units on four properties, and links each with a shared green infrastructure. A non-profit, community-run utility company will oversee the ownership, management and continual re-investment in sustainable construction for this common energy, water and waste infrastructure. Developed by grassroots stakeholders and designed to expand in phases, the project provides a protocol for construction that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, potable water use, the management of waste water, and the production of solid waste through retrofitting, reuse and waste diversion.
