Meet the World's Tallest Passive House: 'The House' at Cornell Tech, NYC

Wed, 02/28/2018 - 6:00pm

Is Passive House performance limited to small, residential buildings? Are tall buildings just too complex for high performance design? Is Passive House certification only for European projects?  Meet ‘The House’ at Cornell Tech, a 26-story building located on Roosevelt Island in New York City.  Learn how it was designed to meet the rigorous performance metrics of the international Passive House Standard and how the engineers for this project helped to make it happen…

Passive House California is pleased to partner with Buro Happold to host our first Los Angeles chapter event, including a special presentation from the BuroHappold team about the tallest certified Passive House building in the world. Meet the new PHCA Board members bases in LA and learn about local projects and their exciting program events for 2018.
