Environmentally responsible, or “Green” building technology has become standard in design for new school buildings, but “Green” is now also becoming part of schools inner-culture, with new curriculums that embrace healthful, ecological living and thinking. Either with roof gardens or on ground, these schools provide a hands-on education about the environment and sustainable living. The event presents two such schools:

St. Philip’s Academy, a private K-8 school in Newark, NJ.
Frank Mentesana, Director of Eco-Spaces, St. Philip’s Academy, Newark.
Dana Jenkins, Principal Designer, Gensler.

PS 216, a K-5 school in Brooklyn, NY.
Vera Fabian, Garden Manager & Teacher, ESYNY, PS 216.
Amale Andraos, WORK Architecture Company (WORKac).

Organized by the AIANY Committee on Architecture for Education.
