IMG_3409      The greenhouse concept was really well liked visually by most of the stakeholders that we met with last Thursday. They loved the idea of openness, light, and keeping nature involved. However, this design was the least practical in the conditions in which we live. The stakeholders told us that the buildings would get too hot and the products that are sold would not be able to stay fresh enough for the customers. Also a huge dislike for this concept had to do with the cost. Having mostly glass and steel beaming for the buildings would jack up the overall cost making it hard to complete and hard to find funds for. Our team was very grateful for the input from the stakeholders and all the advice they gave us. We plan to not go with the conceptual direction of the greenhouse but plan to keep the inspiration of openness and light and use it in more practical ways on our site.
