This episode of our podcast series Stories of the El Moore shares the stories about the new Greenhouse building at the El Moore project in Detroit. It is part of a larger project to explore the nature of sustainable urban living centered on an 1898 abandoned apartment building in a small neighborhood in Detroit. It describes how our future is being built from materials of our past. Covering the specific steps used to design a “new” building using reclaimed materials for other buildings being torn down or deconstructed in Detroit. We also share how the design of the Greenhouse was part of creating a more walkable neighborhood. This was recorded in front of a live audience at the Green Garage in Detroit. Thanks to all who attended and support our work.
