Green Builder Media/Biosphere 2 in the 21st century

September 6, 2019

How we approach the built environment: From the materials used, to the energy saved in building it, to the energy saved when it’s a functioning building, to how we reuse and recycle parts of it as it ages is crucial to sustainability in today’s world.  Sara Gutterman is CEO of Green Builder Media and joins us on Green sense.  

 
Biosphere 2, originally built as a self-contained ecosystem to research maintaining human life in outer space grabbed a lot of headlines when it first came into existence in the early 90s. Since that time, it’s been taken over by the University of Arizona as a place for research and education and we’re joined by John Adams, deputy director of Biosphere 2.
