PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Green building takes on a whole new meaning with this 1,513 GSF aluminum and glass greenhouse at Norfolk State University. The structure sits on a concrete and brick knee-wall. The new greenhouse replaces one that formerly sat on top of the Woods Science building. The new facility, located on a path between Woods Science and the Dick Price Stadium, engages the broader campus in what transpires there. The building is used for the cultivation of blue/green algae, crop plants and microorganisms, hydroponics, and tree seedlings. Students are able to work on a variety of projects, including topics related to food sources and growing plants to beautify campus.
