Yuran produced research on social sustainability and its metrics. Peter focused on integrating green buildings and sustainability programs in communities. Read Peter and Yuran's research.
In addition, seven students from the University of Illinois at Chicago will be working on their senior capstone projects in Urban and Public Affairs at the ICA. One project team will concentrate on practical steps to help us move forward with the creation of a green cultural within the GreenRise Uptown building. Using ICA methods from the global archives and insights from the social process triangles they will create a set of tangible steps ICA and building tenants can take to create a more sustainability minded culture at the ICA. The second team will try to understand all the nuances of existing city-wide policy and how it will effect ICA's implementation of the cutting-edge Bioshaft® project. We look forward to sharing more on both of these topics.
