Boston, a national leader in green building, is promoting the next generation of high performance deep green buildings. The E+ Green Building Program will demonstrate the feasibility of regenerative multi-unit residential buildings and bring energy and environmentally positive homes to Boston’s neighborhoods. These proposal submissions show that regenerative buildings are achievable and not beholden to a particular esthetic.

View an exhibition on view in the BSA Space Salt Gallery through November 18, 2018, of the winning projects' innovative E+ (energy, environment, and equity positive) proposals for the city-owned Highland and Marcella Streets sites in the Highland Park, Roxbury neighborhood. As evidenced by their vision, creativity, and ingenuity, each and every team is a leader in green building design, engineering, and sustainable development.

The initiative continues Boston’s efforts to promote sustainable development and green buildings throughout the City. With the support of NSTAR Electric and National Grid and in partnership with the US Green Building Council, the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter, BSA Space, and the Boston Architectural College, this initiative is challenging leading architects, engineers, developers, and builders to respond to global climate change and envision a truly sustainable future.

This exhibition will temporarily be down from November 26 through December 3.
