Minimize, Maximize or Balance: Designing for Net Zero on an Urban Site

Minimize, Maximize or Balance: Designing for Net Zero on an Urban Site

Our June Next Gen episode will feature Kara Haggerty Wilson of Onion Flats Architecture. Kara will highlight key design elements and address how each was curated to achieve Front Flats, an Onion Flats-designed, built and developed high performance, net zero urban-sited building in Philadelphia. Many qualities of high performance buildings push the limits of typical design, and often require a delicate balance to capture efficiencies. This presentation will provide insights on when to minimize or maximize certain factors and emphasize the critical role of balance in multifamily, high-performance, high-density projects.

Kara Haggerty Wilson is a Philadelphia-based architect and passive house consultant at Onion Flats Architecture. Since joining Onion Flats in 2017, her experience at the firm has shifted from the architect as developer and builder model to a renewed focus on designing and consulting on client-based high performance projects, with a specific interest in deep energy retrofits, along the east coast and beyond.  

This presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 7th at 9am PT / 12pm ET and will be followed by a lively Q+A session.
