“The sun never knew how great it was until it hit the side of a BUILDING!!”
 

Fun and sunny day in the city with our budding young architects and designers as they visited one of the few “net zero” efficient buildings downtown, home of DPR Construction’s Design/build offices.  We learned about “vampire switches,” efficient “GREEN/LEED” construction practices using solar panels, natural lighting, oversized fans, interior green garden walls and recycled materials.  
The kids had great questions and even scored some cool DPR swag. Of course, after all that education, we hit a famous corner pizza spot and walked over to the Palace of the Fine arts for a bit of architectural sketching… 
Great day of hands on learning!
