Green Architecture

The Science House at the Science Museum of Minnesota is designed to produce more energy than it uses on an annual basis. It generates all of its energy needs from its 8.8 kilowatt photovoltaic metal roof. A ground-source heat pump uses the Earth’s thermal energy to heat & cool. It also serves as a Teacher’s Resource Center for public school teachers, and event space for the Science Museum’s outdoor Science Park, The Big Backyard. More SCIENCE HOUSE – GREEN ARCHITECTURE
