The Greenhouse – Using Our Past to Build Our Future (podcast)

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.
