This is a Project. It was designed by SEED Collaborative and collaborator: International Living Future Institute, Ecotope, Quantum, EcoCraft Homes and Modern Building Systems and engineered by 2020 Engineers. It is dated 2014–present.
Creating a new standard for portable classrooms, the SEED (Sustainable Education Every Day) Collaborative in Seattle designed an environmentally restorative—net-zero energy, net-zero water, and 100 percent nontoxic—modular learning space. The design exposes the building’s structure, systems, and functions for inquiry-based learning experiences in science and math. Designed with a goal to address inequities in education, the self-sustaining and transportable SEEDclassroom is adaptable to diverse settings. SEED aims to make all buildings restorative teaching tools that benefit their users and communities.
